DETECTIVES investigating an assault at a house in Popley have appealed for help in tracing two men.

Darren Bryant, 30, of Skippetts Gardens, Viables, Basingstoke, and Joseph Coady, 29, from Addlestone in Surrey, are wanted in connection with an assault in Bourdillon Gardens, Popley, at 4pm on Monday.

A 27-year-old woman was left with minor injuries after the assault and police said threats were also made towards her and her family.

They have taken the unusual step of releasing pictures of the two men.

Detective Sergeant Ash O'Dea said: “These men are wanted in connection with an investigation into a serious incident that occurred in Basingstoke.

“We believe these men are in the Basingstoke area and would urge the public not to approach them but to contact police immediately by calling 101.”

Anyone with information can contact Basingstoke CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
