A man was assaulted early on Saturday, March 23 on Earls Road.
Police have released an appeal for witnesses after a man was attacked and robbed in the early hours by three men, who took items from the man’s pockets.
This comes just days after a man was stabbed nearby on Shakespeare Avenue. The two incidents are, however, not known to be connected.
Police are asking for anyone in the area who may have seen or heard anything suspicious at the time to call DC Lanham at Bitterne CID. Members of the public are also encouraged to contact Hampshire Constabulary on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The Wessex Scene will update this story as more information becomes available.
