Appeal for witnesses to robbery in Stonehouse

Police are appealing for information following a robbery in Stonehouse which took place earlier this week.

Officers were contacted on Wednesday (July 28) and informed that a man had been robbed whilst walking along Laburnum Walk on Tuesday evening (July 27).

It was reported that the victim was walking his dog at around 10.30pm when he was attacked from behind by three men who went on to steal his iPhone.

The men, who were all wearing dark clothing and had their hoods up, pushed the victim causing him to fall to the ground. Once he had fallen over they continued to attack him.

The victim's blue iPhone 12 Pro Max fell from his hand during the attack and the men stole it before leaving.

One of the group was described as being 5ft 11ins tall and the other two were slightly taller and of larger builds. Two had dark hair and the third had fair possibly ginger hair.

The man was taken to hospital after sustaining a number of injuries and has since been discharged.

Officers from the Constabulary's Local Policing Team are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or lives in the area and may have either dashcam, doorbell or CCTV footage which could help the investigation.

You can provide information by completing the following form online, quoting incident 139 of 28 July: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
