Three teenagers injured in Southampton street robbery
11:10am Monday 4th November 2013 in News
THREE teenagers were left needing hospital treatment for cuts and bruising after being punched during a robbery on a Southampton street.
Two men in their early 20s were getting out of a white taxi, possibly a people carrier with a sliding door, and appeared to be having a dispute with the driver.
The three friends, a 17-year-old from the New Forest area and two 18-year-olds from Southampton, walked on but then the two men approached and spoke to them.
They started punching and pushing them, asking them to hand over their belongings.
One handed over a black leather wallet, but then they managed to escape and ran off in different directions.
The teens rang doorbells on Dale Road to try to get help and sanctuary, but nobody answered.
They managed to meet up again and went to Southampton General Hospital for treatment, where police were alerted to the incident, shortly before 1am yesterday.
Police are keen to trace the taxi driver as an important witness and have been conducting enquiries with local taxi firms as well as doing house to house enquiries and checking CCTV footage. Any witnesses or anyone with details is asked to call Shirley CID on 101.
