HAMPSHIRE POLICE are appealing for urgent information and witnesses following a robbery in Gosport last week, which saw a male targeted at knifepoint and his wallet stolen late last week.
The incident occurred between 10.15pm and 10.45pm on June 30 (last Thursday) when a man in his thirties was approached by an unknown male whilst walking along Brockenhurst Road.
It is reported that the male asked the victim for a light for his cigarette before producing a knife and stealing his wallet, before walking away from the scene towards Anns Hill Road in Forton.
The victim described the man as white, and approximately 5 foot nine inches tall with slim build. Other details include the male having dirty and scruffy blonde hair alongside facial stubble.
The suspect is furthermore reported to have worn a grey hoodie and dirty looking jeans at the time of the attack, whilst his age is believed to have been between twenty and twenty-nine years old.
And officers investigating the incident are keen to hear anybody who may have witnessed something in the run-up or aftermath of the robbery; occurring on a residential road as temperatures rose.
They are asking for local residents that have private CCTV, ring doorbell or dashcam footage between the Brockenhurst Roundabout and Anns Hill Road to check for anything that may be of interest.
