UPDATE: The two men have now been bailed by police, pending further enquiries. A condition of their bail is that they sign on at Southampton Central police station on a regular basis. They are bailed until September 12th.
Bitterne police arrested two men today in connection with last week’s robbery and assault on a 92-year-old man on Shaftesbury Avenue.
An 18-year-old and a 29-year-old were arrested this morning, and are being held at Southampton Central police station.
The man had £500 stolen from him on the 6th of August, and was knocked to the ground in the incident. He required surgery to repair damage to one of his hands.
