Man Threatened With Metal Bar In Southampton

Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Southampton.

It happened between 2.30 and 3am on Tuesday April 24 at Millbrook Road East adjacent to Central Railway Bridge.
 
A 23-year-old local man was walking along the bridge towards Shirley Road when he was approached by two men. They asked for money and threatened him with a metal bar.
 
A fight took place and the two men made off empty handed.

Detective Constable Chris Bradford is investigating: “The man suffered injuries to his back, as a result of being hit with the metal bar. Nothing was stolen as he managed to fight the attackers off.
 
“We’d like to hear from anyone who saw two men fitting these descriptions in the area-or did you see them running away from the scene of the attack?” 
 
Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Bradford on 101 or via the website www.hampshire.police.uk/internet/contact/message_officer.htm
