TWO teenage robbers escaped with cash and a mobile phone after attacking a man near a Farningham service station.

The 21-year-old London man had just parked his van at the side of the road near the WJ Kings Garage, in London Road, when he was assaulted by the two youths.

The pair pushed him up against the side of the van before one of them punched him in the face.
