Press release   •   Apr 30, 2019 14:45 BST

Do you recognise this man?

We are looking to identify him as part of our investigation into a robbery that happened in March in Hoglands Park.

Officers were called to St Marys Place in Southampton at 1.28pm on Saturday 23 March by the ambulance service, where a 21-year-old man was receiving treatment for a stab wound to his arm.

It was reported that he had been approached by a large group of men who assaulted him at the Skate Park in Hoglands Park shortly beforehand and stole his bank card.

The victim then left the park and sought help in St Mary’s Place.

Enquiries are ongoing to establish what happened and we would like to identify the person pictured as he may have information to assist our investigation.

In addition we would like to hear from anyone who was in that area at that time and saw what happened, or who may have mobile phone footage of the group involved in the assault.

Four teenage boys have been arrested in connection with this incident. All have been questioned by officers and released from police custody but remain under investigation. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting Operation Kim or 44190101364. Alternatively, call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
