Police are appealing for information after a woman sustained a fractured hip when she was pushed to the ground near Hartley Wintney.

The 71-year-old woman saw three people running through her farm in Hazeley Heath, between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on Wednesday 31 May, and approached them.

One of the three people turned around and pushed the woman, causing her to fall to the ground.

He demanded keys to a quad bike that was parked nearby. She refused and the intruders ran away.

The woman then realised she was injured and was taken to Frimley Park Hospital for treatment to a fractured hip.

All three people were believed to be male, wore dark clothing and had their faces covered.

Detective Constable Jo Martindale said: “On the same afternoon, there were a number of sightings of three or four people riding a quad bike in the Bramshill Common area. The two incidents could be connected.

“Did you see anything suspicious in the Bramshill Common area that afternoon? Did you see a quad bike being ridden? If so, we would like to hear from you.

“We would like to remind residents to remain vigilant and ensure that their property is secure.”
