Woman attacked by gang in Kempshott street robbery

First published in News

A GANG kicked a woman as she sat on a kerb in Kempshott, after she refused to hand over money.

The group of around four or five people, all wearing hooded tops, approached the woman as she sat at the junction of Old Kempshott Lane and Lowlands Road, between 11pm and 11.30pm on Saturday, August 9.

When the 21-year-old woman refused their request for money, they kicked her to the arms and body causing bruising. She then handed over money and the group ran off along Old Kempshott Lane.

All the suspects are described as white and aged in their early 20s.

One of the group is described as of skinny build, clean shaven, around 5ft 9ins tall, and wore a grey hooded top and black tracksuit bottoms.

Detective Constable Andrew Wright said: “This incident is likely to have been overheard by people living in the local area due to the time of night and as a result of the number of people involved.”

Anyone with information can contact DC Wright at Basingstoke police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

This story sounds very familiar to the South Ham story, so these skinny hooded youths could be from Scum Ham, or both Buckscum Ham? Should we tell the police - over to you jonone.

Mean while, whilst you are having fun, there is a young lady who will be too frightened to go out alone anymore, shame on you.

My comment was aimed at the outrageous suggestion that everyone from Buckskin is scum and not meant at the expensive the victims or demean there situation, so I apologise if my previous comment was read this way.

While the well dressed executive scum who drive their flash cars at ridiculous speeds and risk killing other road users and pedestrians are far more likely to come from some of the posher areas.
But hey, that's not anti social behaviour is it, because they don't wear hoodies!!
How can we be so judgmental and denigrate whole areas or sectors of society? When are we going to realise that there is good and bad in all sectors of society, no matter what your background?
My sympathies are with a young woman who has had an awful experience, it must have been terrifying. The culprits should be caught and punished, but please don't use someone's awful experience as an excuse to have a puerile pop at whole sectors or areas of society.

...and so would I. I've got friends and known families from Campsie & Charnwood Close, Pennine Way & Cleveland Close who would never be described in this way and it would be an serious insult to do so.
