Alert message sent 11/04/2019 09:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We’re appealing for information following a robbery which occurred in Corsham. 

At approximately 8pm on Friday 5 April, a group of five teenagers were in The Rec play area off Meriton Avenue, when they were approached by two men who showed them a knife and demanded they hand over money. 

The teenagers handed over £10 and the men then ran off down Meriton Avenue towards Pickwick Road. 

Det Con Aaron Rowe, of Melksham CID, said: “The two suspects are believed to aged about 18 or 19 years old, and both are described as tall and thin, wearing black and grey tracksuits. One of the men had brown hair, while the other was blonde. They were in company of a woman, although we do not have a description of her. 

“Fortunately, there was no physical contact between the groups, but of course this incident would have left the victims feeling shaken up.

“We are carrying out an investigation into this incident and we are keen to hear from any members of the public who may know who those are from the descriptions given, or anyone who was in the Meriton Avenue area on Friday evening and may have seen these two men and woman acting suspiciously.”

Call 101 and quote crime reference number 54190033777.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
