Teenager threatened with a knife in Fleet attack

Published at 12:36pm 16th October 2017. (Updated at 12:48pm 16th October 2017)

A teenager has been attacked and robbed in Fleet.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday (October 15) between 2.50am and 3.10am.

The 18 year old was approached by two men outside the old public toilets near the taxi rank at the junction of Victoria Road and the High Street.

The men assaulted him and threatened him with a knife - before making off with his mobile phone in the direction of The Views park.

The victim suffered minor injuries - and did not require any medical treatment.

The two men are described as white, in their late teens to early 20s. One was wearing blue jeans and the other was wearing black jeans.

Detective Constable Jonathan Swift, said: “This incident happened near the taxi rank and it is likely that other people were in the area. It is believed the offenders were with two other men, described as white and aged in their late teens, who could have been acting as look outs for them.

“I would like to speak to anyone who thinks they may have seen these men in the area, before, during or after the incident. If you witnessed what happened or have any other information that could assist, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference 44170400327, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
