The victim was walking along a footpath between Loughton station and Roding Gardens at about 10.10pm on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 when he was grabbed from behind by one man and punched in the face by another.
The man was then pushed into bushes where the two robbers took his bag containing an Apple iPod, headphones, clothing and other small items. They also grabbed a Samsung Galaxy mobile telephone.
The victim, who is in his late 20s, suffered cuts and bruises but did not need hospital treatment after being checked over by paramedics.
The robbers were both described as being black and aged in their 20s. One was about 6ft 2in and of medium build with stubble on his face. He was wearing black or grey woollen gloves and a dark green or black hoodie or coat and dark coloured jeans.
The second man was about 5ft 8in and of smaller build. He was also wearing a hoodie.
Any witnesses or anyone with information about the two men should contact DS Becky Young at Harlow Target Offender Team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
