Spence assault and robbery

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THREE men assaulted and robbed a 20-year-old man in Spence early yesterday morning.

The man was returning home after a night out with friends at around 2am. A taxi had dropped him off at the intersection of Kingsford Smith Drive and Clarey Crescent in Spence, when three men approached him and asked for a cigarette.

Police said after the victim had told the men he didn’t have a cigarette, he was assaulted and robbed of a sum of cash.

The victim was taken to Calvary hospital for treatment to facial abrasions and lacerations.

Police said the three men were described as aged in their early twenties.
