The 23-year-old from Manor Park had been out drinking on Sunday December 23 and he was waiting for a train home from Maryland Station.

At around 12.30am, he fell asleep on a bench and was approached by a man who, instead of waking him up, went through his pockets.

Two hours later, the victim was targeted again by another two men who checked he was asleep before robbing him.

Altogether, the thieves took his phone, wallet, cash, and travel ticket.
