Police Hunt Youths Over Street Robbery
Southampton detectives are appealing for witnesses to a street robbery early on Sunday morning, July 15.
Two men, both 21, were threatened with a knife, assaulted and robbed of cash by a group of four youths at about 4am in Berkeley Road, Southampton.
Police believe the two victims met the four suspects on Waterloo Terrace, near the Rhino nightclub, and walked along Bedford Place, down Wilton Avenue and into Berkeley Road. The two victims walked in front of the four youths.
When the group reached Berkeley Close, one of the four youths punched one victim and threatened him with a knife. Both victims handed over cash totalling £100. The suspects are believed to have made off on foot in Berkeley Close. Neither of the victims were seriously injured.
All of the four suspects are white and aged 19 to 20. The first has straw-like ginger hair and long ginger stubble. The second is slim and wore a checked shirt. This youth may be white, but has a darker complexion than the others.
The third suspect is thin and 5ft 8ins to 5ft 9ins tall with shaved hair. The fourth has a chunky build, is 5ft 8ins tall and wore a sleeveless jacket.
Police want to hear from anyone who saw this group outside Rhino nightclub or in Berkeley Road or Close when the robbery occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Simon Bembridge at Southampton Central on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111. Minicom users may ring 01962 875000.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
