The suspects on the gold quad bike

We are appealing to anyone who may recognise a gold quad bike that was used as a getaway vehicle following an attempted robbery on a farm worker in Tadley.

The incident occurred between 3.45pm and 3.55pm on Tuesday, April 30.

The worker had been in a field off Woodhouse Lane, Ashford Hill, Tadley, when he was approached by three young white men in grey hoodies.

The suspects have attempted to steal the farm worker’s quad bike, which had a leaf blower with it, but were challenged by the 60 year old victim. They took a set of keys from the victim before hitting him on the arm with a rake, that was lying on the ground at the scene.

The victim, who sustained minor cuts and abrasions, shouted at the suspects, who made off on the gold coloured quad bike.

The first suspect is described as being aged between 19 and 21, medium build, with dark hair and a thin face.

The second male appeared younger that the first suspect and had dark curly hair.

There is no description of the third male other than he was wearing a grey hoodie, similar to the other two suspects.

If you recognise the quad bike described or know the identity of the suspects, please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting 44190148430.
