It happened at about 1am on Sunday October 15 as two youths walked down High Causeway and came across a group of between 15 and 20 youths.
An altercation occurred and one of the group grabbed one of the men, a 25-year-old from London, and punched him in the face before stealing his MP3 player. His friend, a 15-year-old boy from London, tried to stop the assault and was punched three times in the chest. Both then ran away from the group. They suffered minor injuries.
