Knife Robbery in Basingstoke

A month after a teenage boy was robbed at knife-point in Basingstoke, Heart's found out no one's been arrested over it.

The 17-year-old was walking through the underpass at New Road between Castons Yard and the back of McDonalds on January 11, when a man approached him and demanded he hand over his phone and wallet.

The teenager noticed the man had a blade and gave him his things.

The man is described as in his 20s, about 6ft tall and broad build.

He was wearing a baggy black zip-up hooded-top with the hood up and faded blue jeans and trainers. He was untidy in his appearance and spoke with a Polish accent.
Detective Constable Natalie Stallworthy is hoping someone will recognise him;

"This was a knife-point robbery which occurred in broad daylight in a busy area of town, so someone must have seen something.

"Students from Queen Mary’s College regularly use this route to walk into the town centre, so may have seen a man similar to the e-fit picture."
