Muggings in Staines and Ashford

Two incidents reported to the police are detailed below. All too often incidents such as these go unreported thus, significantly down-scaling the already high official statistics.

Police appeal for witnesses after a 19-year-old man is robbed in Ashford


DETECTIVES in Spelthorne are appealing for witnesses and information after a 19-year-old man was robbed in Ashford last week. The incident took place near the hut and tennis courts in Ashford Park, which is off Clockhouse Lane, between 7.50pm and 8pm on Thursday, 16 June. The victim, who is from Bedfont, was walking through the park with a friend when they were approached by the two suspects. The suspects threatened to attack the victim with a knife, although no weapon was seen during the incident, and also pushed the victim’s friend to the floor.

DETECTIVES in Spelthorne are appealing for witnesses after a 23-year-old man was the victim of a robbery in Staines last week.
The incident took place at the junction of the A30 London Road and the Crooked Billet roundabout between 4.55pm and 5.12pm on Tuesday 10 May.
The victim, who is from south east London, was walking towards the train station when he was confronted by a group of three suspects who pushed and threatened him.
The suspects then surrounded the victim and punched him several times in the face, causing the victim to fall to the ground.
While the suspect was lying on the floor the suspects stole the two shoulder bags he was carrying, which contained a laptop valued at around £300 and a substantial amount of cash, and left the area on foot.

If you are concerned about violent crime in your area, please send a letter or email your MP requesting that the Offensive Weapons and Firearms laws be amended to allow the carry of items for self-defence.
