Police appeal for information following assaults in Warsash and Locks Heath
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses after two people were assaulted in Warsash and Locks Heath yesterday evening (Friday 9 June).
It was reported to us shortly after 10.30pm that earlier in the evening, at approximately 8.30pm, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were approached by a group of males in the Strawberry Fields in Warsash. The 18-year-old man was assaulted and had his watch taken by the group, who then left the area. He sustained minor injuries to his head, leg and elbow.
It was also reported that the same group approached the pair again at approximately 10.30pm in Battle Close, Locks Heath, and assaulted the 17-year-old boy. The boy sustained injuries to his face. This assault took place on a footpath next to Locks Heath Centre, adjacent to Waitrose and close to the skate park.
Investigating officers would like to hear from anyone who saw either of the incidents take place or anyone with information that may assist our enquiries.
As part of our investigation we have arrested a 16-year-old boy from Bishop’s Waltham and a 15-year-old boy from Fareham on suspicion of Section 18 wounding with intent and robbery. Both remain in police custody at the current time.
We remain in the area today conducting enquiries. Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting 44230229296.
