Po­lice hunt trio af­ter as­sault in Wis­ley woods

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

A MAN was left ‘badly shaken’ af­ter he was knocked to the ground and as­saulted in an at­tack in the woods on Thurs­day (Septem­ber 14).

The 19-year-old was as­saulted and threat­ened be­fore the at­tack­ers fled the scene in Wis­ley, tak­ing his cash and phone with them.

Sur­rey Po­lice con­firmed two men and a woman as­saulted the vic­tim in the woodland around Old Lane, near the junc­tion with Hatch Lane.

The vi­o­lent as­sault and rob­bery took place be­tween 4.30 and 5pm and the in­jured man was left in the woods be­fore flag­ging down a pass­ing mo­torist for help.

Po­lice re­leased de­tails of the at­tack­ers on Mon­day (Septem­ber 18) in an ap­peal for wit­nesses. Both men were de­scribed as black, in their mid-20s around 6’1” or 6’2” and mus­cu­lar.

One male was said to have a goa­tee beard, short black hair and was wear­ing a grey jumper and blue jeans.

The other male was wear­ing a black hooded top and blue jeans.

The woman in­volved was de­scribed as mixed race, in her early 20s, around 5’2” with short dark curly high­lighted hair.

She was wear­ing pur­ple leg­gings and a white sweat­shirt.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Nicky Gard­ner, who is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case, said: “I am urg­ing any­body who wit­nessed or heard any­thing last Thurs­day evening, around the Old Lane, Wis­ley area to con­tact the po­lice.

“The area is pop­u­lar with dog walk­ers and I hope that some­one may have seen or heard some­thing that can help us catch th­ese three.

“The in­ci­dent left the vic­tim re­quir­ing hospi­tal treat­ment, and he is badly shaken.

“Any­one who saw or heard any­thing could help us piece to­gether what hap­pened that af­ter­noon”
