POLICE have issued an appeal to find a Southampton man after a teenage boy was the victim of an alleged robbery in the city.

Officers want to track down Conner Halford, who is wanted after failing to appear in court in Southampton on a robbery charge.

Mr Halford was charged after a group of youths attacked a 16-yearold boy, robbing him of his Blackberry phone as he walked along Sholing Road with a friend.

It happened on Friday, March 15, last year between 3pm and 3.45pm.

He has also failed to appear in court on a grievous bodily harm charge relating to an attack on a man in October 2011, and another of theft in August 2012.

Mr Halford is 20 and is described as approximately 6ft, of average build, with brown hair cut short and brown eyes.

He has a tattoo of his surname ‘Halford’ on his right arm. He was last known to be living in Victoria Road, Woolston, and is still thought to be in Southampton.

Anyone with any information regarding Mr Halford’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Integrated Offender Management team at Southampton Central police station on 101.
