TWO men were robbed at gun point in the street early yesterday.

The two victims, local men aged 21 and 23, were walking east along Eastern Road in Brighton when they were approached by four men near the junction with Rock Street shortly before 1am.

One of the suspects pulled out what is described as a small black hand gun, pointed it at the victims, threatened them and demanded they hand over everything they had.

They took a wallet belonging to one of the victims and ran to a small blue four-door car, possibly a VW or Vauxhall saloon, which drove off.

No shots were fired and the victims were shaken but unhurt.

Two of the suspects were described as black, one as white and one as mixed race. They were all aged in their mid to late teens and were wearing dark clothes and hooded tops.

Detective Sergeant Cheryl Lewendon said: "If you saw what happened or have any other information please contact us via or call 101, quoting serial 66 of December 13."
