We are appealing for witnesses following the robbery of a man in Portsmouth.
Between 8 and 8.30pm on Monday (5 September) the victim, a man in his 30s, was walking along London Road in the direction of Ophir Road. When he reached the bus stop near the junction of London Road and Ophir Road he was approached by two men who assaulted him, knocking him to the floor. They then left with his mobile phone and ran back down London Road towards North End.
The victim suffered minor injuries.
The first man is described as:
Aged between 18 and 20-years-old
Of slim build
Wearing all black, including a black hoodie
Riding a bicycle.
The second man is described as:
Dreadlock style hair
No facial hair
Of slim/athletic build
Wearing a black hoodie.
We would like to hear from anyone who recognises these descriptions or anyone who was in the area at the time and saw what happened or the two men leaving the scene.
Perhaps you were driving along London Road between 8 and 8.30pm and captured dash cam footage that may assist our enquiries?
