Have your say

A MAN was pushed up against a tree and punched.

It happened on a quiet bridlepath which runs between Warren Park and Waterlooville, close to Calshot Road, between 2.50am and 3.40am on Saturday.

The men rifled through the 21-year-old’s pockets but left empty-handed. All three punched him before walking off. PC Antony Botten said: ‘While there were not many people in the area at this time, we are still hoping somebody may have seen the incident take place, or can give us information about those responsible.‘

All are white and in their early 20s. One had a beard.
