Appeal launched after Bridgemary robbery

HAMPSHIRE POLICE have launched an urgent request for information and witnesses following a robbery in Bridgemary, which further saw a teenager suffer serious injuries to his head and body after being attacked by two men as they stole multiple personal items before running off in the early hours of last Saturday (April 1).

Between 3am and 3:30am an eighteen year man is reported to have been walking along Wych Lane towards the direction of Brookers Lane when he saw two young men by Holbrook Primary School. They were walking from the Bridgemary School area, before following their victim into the small alleyway off Honeysuckle Close.

Catching up, the two men approached the victim from behind before punching and kicking him to the floor on multiple occasions, further asking him for his phone and stealing his wallet from his possession. The pair are reported to have run away from the scene and travelling via foot in the direction of Holbrook Primary School.

After an initial investigation officers have called for anybody who matches their description of two males aged between fifteen and nineteen years old; both being white and of a medium build. They are between 5ft 7in to 5ft 10in in height whilst wearing grey hoodies and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms at the time of this robbery.

Investigators are now asking for anybody who know of these two men or may have witnessed the incident to come forward and assist their ongoing inquiries. They are further keen to speak to those residents within the area who have CCTV or ring-bell video footage who can identify these males and bring them both to justice.

Anyone with information or footage is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101 and quote the case’s reference number 44230128775. They can further submit details using this online reporting tool available on the Hampshire Police website, with official support and guidance available on the links here.
