Attempted street robbery in Popley
A YOUNGSTER resisted two muggers who tried to grab his phone in Popley.
The 15-year-old boy was walking in Bermuda Close, near to the Bermuda Hall, when he was approached from behind by two black men who tried to grab his phone.
When the victim did not give up his phone, he was punched in the head. He managed to get away and ran home.
Officers are appealing for information about the attack, which took place at 5pm on Tuesday, August 6.
The attackers are described as black, aged in their early 20s and of slim build.
One had long afro-style hair and the other had shorter hair. Both were wearing dark-coloured t-shirts and trousers.
PC Dave Sacree said: “There is a play park close to the area where it happened, so people may have seen these men before or after the incident.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Sacree at Basingstoke police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
