10:24am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
POLICE have launched a hunt for two men after an attack in a Southampton tower block.
Today officers released e-fits of the suspects they want to track down following the assault in Millbrook towers.
The attack in the tower block in Windermere Avenue, happened shortly after midday on October 25.
Two men, believed to be suspects in the assault, were seen running from the second floor of the tower block.
One is described as: Dark skinned man, aged in his late 20s, approximately 6ft 1ins tall, wearing a high-visibility yellow jacket and dark blue trousers.
The other is: Also a dark skinned man, aged in his early 20s, approximately 5ft 11ins tall, wearing similar high visibility jacket and trousers as the first man and a dark blue hat.
Detective Sergeant Amanda Horsburgh said: “Thankfully the victim was not seriously injured.
“He was taken to hospital and later released. However, clearly this has been a very traumatic experience for him.
“We are releasing e-fits of two of the suspects in the hope it will prompt anyone who saw men matching their description in the area at the time to come forward.
“I would also like to hear from anyone else who has information that can assist with our enquiries.
“If you don’t want to speak to the police directly, you can always call the Crimestoppers anonymously charity who will pass on the information.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DS Horsburgh on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
