Pictures released in Basing View robbery appeal
DETECTIVES investigating the terrifying robbery of a 61-year-old woman have released CCTV images of her suspected attacker.
The daytime assault took place at 5pm on Friday, August 9, on a footpath to the rear of the AA building in Basing View.
The attacker, a man on a bike, pinned the woman to the ground, ripped off the necklace she was wearing and stole two mobile phones she had with her.
He was carrying two green carrier bags, which had clothing in them, on his bike and is believed to have an Eastern European accent.
Detective Constable Nick Hines said: “This was an extremely frightening incident for this woman. Although she wasn’t physically injured, she was very shaken by what happened to her.
“This happened at a busy time on a Friday afternoon so someone may have seen this man cycling in the town before or after the incident or may have seen the incident itself.”
Anyone with information can call Det Con Hines at Basingstoke CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
