By KentOnline reporter

Police are investigating three robberies in Sittingbourne - including one where a man's head was stamped on.

The first was last Tuesday when a taxi driver was robbed by a man who got into the cab and stole cash in Chappell Way, Milton, at about 11pm.

Then just after midnight on Saturday a 21-year-old man had his phone and wallet taken by two men in Bell Road while he was walking home after a night out.

They are said to have stamped on his head before fleeing empty handed.
