The 45-year-old briefly spoke to the offenders before being punched in the face twice, causing him to fall to the floor.

The phone was not taken but it was damaged after it fell to the ground after the man was punched.

The man required hospital treatment for facial injuries, but he has since been discharged.

Both people were male and were dressed in dark hooded tops and face coverings.

It is believed they were aged between 20 and 30.

The person who asked the man to hand over the phone spoke in a local accent.

Investigator Lynn Brandon, of Slough police station, said: “This was a completely unprovoked incident of robbery on this victim, who as a result sustained injuries requiring hospital treatment.

“Thankfully he has now been discharged from hospital, but I am still investigating this incident as a priority, and I hope that there will have been witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information, that can come forward to assist.
