Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an assault in Andover during the early hours of Sunday, June 23.

Between 1.45am and 2am, a 43-year-old man was sat in the taxi office at A&B Cars in Winchester Street when he was approached by a man.

The man asked the victim about some money and then punched him in the eye. The attacker was pulled out of the office by a friend who then also returned and punched the victim in the face.

The two men then left in a taxi with a woman.

Officers have descriptions of the two men. The first is described as:

  • White
  • Approx 5ft 10ins to 5ft 11ins
  • Athletic build
  • Short mousey brown hair
  • Aged in his late 20s
  • Wearing a light green or blue top

The second man is described as:

  • White
  • Around 5ft 7ins to 5ft 8ins
  • Dark, gelled back hair
  • Aged in his late 20s
  • Wearing jeans

PC Holly Searle said: “This assault happened at a time when the town centre would have been very busy and it is likely there would have been a lot of people around who may have witnessed this incident.

If you have any information that can help with this investigation, please get in touch.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Searle at Andover police station on 101 or call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
