Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


We're appealing for witnesses after an assault in Trowbridge. 

At approximately 1.40pm yesterday (04/03), a man in his 20s was assaulted on the junction of Wingfield Road and Brook Road. 

The victim was walking to work when two males approached him from behind, having walked from Lambrok Road.

The first suspect took the victim's cigarettes and then punched him in the head.  The second suspect attempted to take the victim's headphones but instead dropped them causing significant damage to them.  The two then left the scene. 

Fortunately, the victim, although shaken, did not suffer any injuries.

Both males are described as white, in their late teens, of slim build and were wearing their hoods up with dark joggers and trainers. 

If you heard or saw anything suspicious in this area at this time or have dash cam footage please call 101 and quote crime reference number 54210020962. 

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
