Appeal for help in identifying three people on CCTV in connection to a robbery in Hoglands Park, Southampton
Main article content
We are now in a position to release CCTV footage in connection with a robbery that took place in Southampton back in September.
At around 12.35am on Friday 24 September, a group of six people – along with two other unknown people - were in Hoglands Park, near to the skate park and toilet block when the group were approached by a man who demanded they hand over their belongings whilst threatening them with a knife. The man stole two wallets from people in the group before running off towards Kingsway, heading north.
No-one was injured.
The man was described as being black, approximately 6ft tall and wearing a grey hoody, black jogging bottoms, a black baseball cap and carrying a ‘man bag’.
Subsequently, bank cards belonging to the victims were used soon after the robbery.
Officers would like to speak to the persons shown in the CCTV images to assist with their enquiries.
Is this you shown on the CCTV images? Do you recognise anyone in these images? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously in the area in the early hours of Friday 24 September?
