We are appealing for witnesses following a robbery outside of Basingstoke Train Station on Monday 12 April.

Shortly before 9.40pm, a 19-year-old man was assaulted by two men who stole cash from him and then left in the direction of Chapel Hill.

He received minor injuries to his face and hand.

The incident occurred in the seating area outside the front entrance of the train station.

An investigation into the incident is underway and we would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen or heard anything.

Officers believe there could be a number of witnesses who were in the area at the time and could help assist their enquiries.

A 20-year-old man from Basingstoke has been arrested on suspicion of robbery in connection with the incident.

A 17-year-old man from Basingstoke has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and possession of a controlled drug of Class A.

Both have been released under investigation while our enquiries continue.
