Two men in their 50s were attacked and mugged in Stavanger on Friday night.

A 58 year old man was beaten, kicked and robbed of his wallet and mobile phone by four people in Hundvåg, reported the newspaper VG.

The mugging happened just before at 2am. Approximately 40 minutes later, a 55-year-old man was attacked, beaten and robbed of his wallet in the same area.

Police describe the muggers as dark-skinned, and believe the same people are behind both muggings. The 58-year-old was taken to Stavanger University Hospital. It isn’t yet known if the second man was injured.

No one has yet been arrested.
