Police in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a woman was robbed at bus stop in the town opposite WH Smith on Gervais Place.
The attack took place between 4.45am and 5.15am on Sunday, 2 June.
The 33-year-old victim was approached by three men described as speaking with Spanish accents. One man restrained the woman and the other two went through her handbag stealing her mobile phone and some cash. She managed to break the restraint and run away to safety and escaped without injury.
Police Constable Ian Allen, of Bournemouth police, said, “This was a cowardly attack by a group of men on a lone woman and it has left her extremely shaken and upset.
“I am keen to speak with the people shown in the picture as I believe they can help with the investigation.
“I urge them – or anyone who recognises them – to come forward and speak to the police.
“There were a number of people around at the time who may have seen something and I ask them to contact Dorset Police in confidence.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 2:125. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
