Can you help after a man was assaulted and robbed in Otterbourne?

We’re carrying out enquiries and regular patrols after a 42-year-old man was assaulted and robbed in Otterbourne.

At some point between 11pm on Saturday 23 February and 1:30am the following morning the victim, who was pushing his bicycle along Otterbourne Road, was approached by four men. The men assaulted the victim, leaving him with cuts to his wrist and knee. He was also punched leaving him with a black eye, cuts to his face, and he has subsequently been treated for a bruise to the brain.

The men took his folding mountain bike, which had a grey frame and green forks, and his wallet.
