Witness appeal after woman injured in Leamington robbery

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a woman was robbed in Radcliffe Gardens, Brunswick Street, Leamington Spa.

At around 2pm on Wednesday (21 August) the woman - in her 20s - was by the garages at the rear of Radcliffe Gardens when she was assaulted by a male and a female. She was then taken to the rear entrance of Radcliffe Gardens where she was assaulted again and had her purse stolen.

The victim was taken to hospital where she is being treated for serious injuries to her leg and torso.

A 30-year-old woman from Warwick was arrested on suspicion of robbery and bailed until next month while enquiries continue.

Detective Constable Imran Ghouri from Leamington CID said: "We've launched an investigation to establish who was responsible for the shocking attack. We're keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any other information that could help with our enquiries.

"We're especially keen to speak to anyone who caught the incident on their mobile phone.

"One of our lines of enquiry is that the victim and offenders were known to each other."

Anyone with information that could help police with their enquiries should call 101 quoting incident 220 of 21 August 2019. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
