Police release e-fit after woman was punched in the face in South View
THIS is the man police are looking for in connection with a robbery that happened in the middle of the day.
The e-fit image has been released after a 27-year-old woman, who was walking along a pathway between Doswell Way and Norn Hill, in South View, was punched in the face. It was around 12.40pm on September 27 when the victim felt her hair being pulled from behind, before a man confronted her and demanded she hand over cash.
She gave him a small amount of money, and he then punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground.
He kicked her in the ribs before making off, leaving her with grazes to her arms and minor injuries to her face and body.
The man is described as white, aged in his 40s, about 5ft nine to 10ins tall and very skinny.
He had a short, dark-brown beard with flecks of grey, blue eyes and spoke with either a Scottish or Irish accent.
He was wearing a knee-length green camouflage army-style jacket which was ripped, and the victim said he smelled strongly of alcohol and body odour.
He also had on a baseball cap, which was too small for him.
PC Tom Prutz said: “This is a very distinctive-looking man. Do you recognise him? Have you seen him in the Basingstoke area? If you have any information which may help to identify him, please contact me as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information should call PC Prutz at Basingstoke police station on 101.
*A 36-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and was released on bail until November 29, pending further enquiries.
