Police officers have asked members of the public to help identify a person of interest in relation to an Andover mugging.

Hampshire Constabulary have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to following a man having his bank card and PIN stolen by armed men.

The two men are said to have assaulted the victim and threatened him with a weapon before withdrawing money from his account.

The incident occurred between 21:35 and 21:45 on Thursday, January 28, on Admiral Way. A man is his 30s was walking alone near to the Queen Charlotte pub and the Co-op when he was stopped by two men.

The two men assaulted him and threatened him with a weapon, demanding that the victim hand over his bank card and pin. The man handed them over, with one of the men withdrawing money from the victim’s account at the Co-op.

The card was then returned to the victim before the two men ran off.

The first man is described as being approximately 24 years old, 5ft 7ins tall and of a stocky build. He was wearing black clothing with the hood up and a blue face mask.

The second man is described as being white, approximately 22 years old, 5ft 9ins tall and of a skinny build. He was wearing a black hoodie with small white logo on the back of the neck, black trousers and white trainers with a black logo.

Hampshire Constabulary asked anyone who recognises the man in the image, or who has any information or memory of suspicious behaviour on that evening to call 101, quoting the reference 44210033908.
