Police launch appeal after Gosport assault

HAMPSHIRE CONSTABULARY have announced they have launched an “urgent” appeal for witnesses and information after a serious incident in Gosport Town Centre earlier this weekend; which saw an unnamed thirty-seven year old man assaulted with officers now looking to identify a male suspect and accompanying woman as part of early investigations.

This incident happened at approximately 10pm on Saturday evening on the High Street; close to the ferry terminal and Falkland Gardens area. It is reported that the victim was approached whilst he was walking and punched several times by an unnamed male; which caused him to fall onto the ground where he was stamped on and sustained chest injuries.

The suspect is described to be white and approximately five-foot nine-inches in height with a stocky build. His hair was said to be black with short style on the side and square on top, whilst wearing a plain black top and black jeans. Police also described a white woman with long blonde hair and dark clothing; whilst being aged between late 20s to early 30s.

Investigators are asking for anybody with information or footage to contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101 and quote the case’s reference number of 44230297967. They can further submit details using the online reporting tool available on the Hampshire Police website, with all official support and further guidance available on the links here.
