Sailor Robbed In Late-Night Attack

A 21-year-old sailor’s been attacked and robbed by three men on his way back to Portsmouth naval base late at night.

The attack happened on Mile End Road just past the Shell Victory Garage, towards the continental ferry port between 11.30pm on Wednesday, 6 July and 12.30am on Thursday, 7 July.

Police said the sailor had been dropped off by a taxi and was walking to his ship, HMS Excellent, when a woman at the Shell garage offered him a lift.

He turned it down and was attacked moments later by three men who stole £65 and left him with grazes and bruises to his face and right elbow, they added. 

The three male suspects are described as white and of average height and build.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Constable Allison Fraser at Fratton Police Station by phoning 101.
