Robbery - Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted and robbed in Witney in the early hours of 15th June.

At 2.30am, an 18-year-old man was attacked by three men as he walked along the alleyway leading from The Springs to Ducklington Lane (at the rear of McDonald’s Restaurant and the Witney Astroturf pitch).

He was hit several times in the face and head and had his mobile phone and wallet stolen. The three men who assaulted him were all white and around 6ft.

PC Tim Pavey, from Witney police station, said: “After this man was hit a number of times, he fell to the ground and the next thing he remembers is waking up the following morning at home without his mobile phone and wallet.

“If you saw anything suspicious in the area of the alleyway on Saturday night–Sunday morning, please get in touch and tell us what you know.”

PC Pavey can be contacted via the Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505.

If you don’t want to talk to police and don’t want to leave your name, call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
