Reeking robber punches woman in South View
A ROBBER stinking of booze pulled his victim’s hair from behind before punching her in the face.
The street robbery took place on a path between Doswell Way and Norn Hill, South View, at 12.40pm on Friday, September 27.
The 27-year-old woman was walking along the path when she felt her hair being pulled from behind.
The robber, described as smelling strongly of alcohol and body odour, demanded she hand over cash. When she did, he punched her in the face, and kicked her in the ribs when she fell to the ground, before running away.
The man was described as white, in his 40s, and very skinny. He spoke with either a Scottish or an Irish accent and he wore a knee-length army-style jacket which was ripped.
PC Tom Prutz said an elderly man who walked past the victim just before the attack took place might have vital information about her attacker.
He added: “This is a busy walkway and I am appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time or who saw a man matching this description to contact me.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Prutz at Basingstoke police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
