Detective Constable Sarah Chaplin is appealing for information following an incident which occurred at a property in Glynebourne Close, Salisbury.
At approximately 8:10 pm last night (Thursday 2nd August 2012) three men broke into a flat and assaulted the resident. The 54 year old male victim, was hit on the head with a weapon and punched to his face.
The men searched the flat and took the victim’s wallet containing an amount of cash and left.
Police were called and the victim received hospital treatment for his injuries.
The three suspects were all described as white, wearing dark clothing and had balaclavas. They were around 5’6-5’8 tall, of slim build and aged around 16-18 years.
They ran to a white saloon car that was parked in Gainsborough Close opposite Old Dairy Close. The use of a car could mean that they are older than they look.
DC Chaplin said: ‘We need to identify the three men responsible for this attack and would like to speak to anyone who has information. Did you see three young men of similar description in the area during the evening of Thursday 2nd August 2012? Have you heard about what happened? – if so please get in contact.’
