Man threatened during robbery

Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in Basingstoke. The incident occurred between 12.30am and 12.35am on Monday, January 27th.

The victim, a 19-year-old man, was walking home via a green area between the Victory Road roundabout and Lower Brook Street when he was approached by an unknown man. This man threatened him with violence and asked for money.

The victim was not assaulted during the incident but the threat of violence will not be tolerated. Were you in the area at the time and did you see anyone matching the suspect's description? Anyone with information about this incident should contact police so we can find the person responsible.”
