CCTV released after nightclub robbery

Detectives investigating an armed robbery in Basingstoke have released CCTV footage showing a woman they want to speak to.

Shortly after 1pm on Monday, two men walked into Wonderland, off Churchill Way. Once inside they threatened a member of staff with what is believed to be a handgun, tied him up and stole more than £10,000 in cash.

The men, described as white with their faces covered, then left the club and made off towards Church Street.

One was wearing a black padded jacket and dark coloured trousers, possibly jogging bottoms. The other man was wearing grey trousers, possibly jogging bottoms, and a dark-coloured jacket.

Now detectives are appealing for help in tracing a woman who is seen in the CCTV footage to cross over Churchill Way towards Wonderland at around the time when the two men are seen walking into the club.

Det Const Richard Chegwidden said: “This woman could have vital information which could assist our investigation. If this is you or you recognise her then please contact police as soon as possible.

“We are also still appealing for anyone who recognises the two men seen entering and exiting Wonderland to come forward.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Basingstoke CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
