Appeal for witnesses to Penhill robbery

By Jamie Hill - 3 July 2020


Officers are investigating a report of a robbery which occurred in Swindon this week.

At approximately 10pm on Wednesday July 1, a man in his 40s was out on a walk in the Penhill area when he was approached by another man who assaulted him, causing him to fall to the floor. 

When the victim returned home, he noticed his bank card and £20 cash had been stolen. 

Insp Colin Conway said: “The victim has a number of visible disabilities which make him vulnerable – he is also partially sighted but has given officers the best account of the incident that he could.  

“We’d urge any witnesses to get in touch as any information, regardless of how insignificant it may seem, could be really helpful.”

Call 101 and quote crime reference number 54200064084.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
