Hampshire police hunt for these 3 witnesses to Southsea Common attack after two women arrested
THESE three men are needed to help police investigate a ‘nasty’ attack on a woman on Southsea Common.
Hampshire police released four images of three men tonight after earlier confirming two women had been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm in an assault last week.
As reported, a 20-year-old woman suffered serious head and face injuries in the June 17 attack at 8.30pm. A viral video capturing part of the incident appears to show the victim having her head stamped on repeatedly.
A 25-year-old woman, from Cosham, and a 22-year-old woman, from central Portsmouth, remain in police custody.
Detective Inspector Nicola Burton said: ‘We are keen to speak with the three men pictured as witnesses, as we believe they have vital information to help our enquiries.
‘We believe the man in the first two images on the left to be the same person.
‘This was a very serious assault where the victim suffered serious injuries.
‘If you are pictured in any of these images, or you know who these people are, then I urge you to please contact us so we can speak with you.’
The victim was treated at Queen Alexandra Hospital but has since been discharged.
Call police on 101, quoting 44200219951, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Earlier police asked members of the public to stop sharing the footage on social media.
