Woman robbed on King George V playing field in Portsmouth

Police are investigating a report of a robbery at King George V playing field in Cosham on Sunday 2 June.

Sometime between 4.30-5.30pm a 46-year-old woman was on the field when she approached a group of about six teenagers.

It’s alleged that one of the boys in the group hit the woman around the head with his green and white motorcycle helmet; the woman fell to the floor and another boy kicked her.

The woman got her purse out and one of the boys grabbed it. The boy also grabbed her handbag and stole the woman’s phone, leaving her bag behind.

Shortly afterwards, two girls from the group went back to check the woman was ok and returned her purse and phone, however £50 had been stolen.

The boys were described as:

Boy one

About 16-years-old
Dark brown hair, swept to the side
He had a green and white motorcycle helmet
Boy two

He had a dark-coloured helmet
Police would particularly like to hear from the two girls who helped the woman. One of the girls was wearing a strappy top and white jeans and the other girl was wearing a mustard-coloured coat and had brown wavy hair.

Anyone who recognises the boys from the description, or has any information, is asked to call 101 quoting 44190189347.
