TWO men were robbed as they waited for a fast food order at a popular drive through restaurant.

The shocked pair had a mobile phone, keys and bank card stolen from their pockets as they sat in their vehicles at Sudbury's McDonalds store on Monday night.

A gang of three men then turned their attentions to another man walking in the area who was attacked and suffered facial injuries before the trio fled the scene.
