Appeal for information following serious assault in Portsmouth
Main article content
We are appealing for information after a man was seriously assaulted in Hilsea on Sunday (11 September).
At approximately 6.30pm the man, who is in his 30s, was travelling in a black BMW when he became involved in a verbal altercation with two men on mopeds on London Road at the Stubbington Road roundabout.
The mopeds then followed the BMW to Doyle Avenue where the vehicle came to a stop.
One of the moped riders then hit the man a number of times in the face, knocking him unconscious and breaking his nose.
A woman in her 50s was also pushed to the ground during the altercation and knocked unconscious.
Both victims were taken to hospital for treatment and have since been discharged.
Since this incident was reported to us we have been following a number of lines of enquiry in order to identify the offender and would like to appeal to any witnesses we haven’t already spoken with to please come forward.
We’re particularly keen to hear from the man pictured, seen in the area at the time, in connection with this incident. We appreciate that you can’t see his face, however someone may recognise him from his clothing. He is described as:
Aged between 18 to 30 –years-old
Of medium build
Dark blonde hair
Wearing a white t-shirt and grey shorts
Riding a grey and red moped.
Do you recognise the above description and/or image? Were you in the London Road/Doyle Avenue area on Sunday evening? Did you see the assault or an altercation taking place beforehand involving two mopeds and a black BMW?
Perhaps you have dash cam footage of the incident that may assist our enquiries? Or maybe you live nearby and have Ring Doorbell or CCTV footage?
