We are appealing for information following two separate street robberies in the Oakridge area of Basingstoke.

The first took place between 6.15pm and 6.45pm on Tuesday 23 October, when a 20-year-old man was walking in the underpass between Shakespeare Road and Oakridge Road.

Two men approached him. The victim was punched in the face. He dropped his phone and then ran away.

The first man is described as:

  • between 16 and 18 years of age
  • around 5ft 6ins tall

The men are described as wearing black/dark blue sporty clothing.
