Witnesses sought after man robbed at Andover Bus Station
Were you at Andover Bus Station last Wednesday evening (September 10)? Did you see two young men acting suspiciously or steal a rucksack from a man waiting for a bus? If so, police want to hear from you.
Between 10.30pm and 10:45pm on Wednesday  night, a 28-year-old man was waiting for a bus when he was approached by two men. One of the men threatened the victim with a knife, and the pair fled with his rucksack, which contained a Sony Playstation 4, a FIFA 14 game, and other personal items including a Michael Kors and Hindenburg watch.
The victim, who lives in Wiltshire, was unharmed, and reported the incident to Wiltshire Police the next day, who reported it to Hampshire Constabulary.
The robbers were both white and described as being aged between 19 and 25 years old.  One is described as:
  • 6ft tall
  • Athletic build
  • Wearing black clothing.
The second man is described as:
  • About 5ft 7ins with dark stubble
  • Medium length dark hair
  • Wearing black clothing
PC Craig Bannerman said: “I am very keen to hear from anyone who was out and about between 10pm and 11pm last Wednesday around the Chantry Centre and the bus station.
“Staff who were locking up at local businesses may have noticed two men acting suspiciously.  It is possible that our suspects ran out from the Bus Station towards Wilkinsons, or possibly along Waterloo Court towards the High Street.
“Did you see any thing suspicious? Did you see two men running in the area?
Are you aware of anyone discussing the robbery of a Playstation 4 with a FIFA 14 game and trying to sell it on? If so, please call us now so we can find these men.”
Anyone with information should call 101 and ask for PC Bannerman at Andover Police Station.
