Robbery, Newton Abbot

Police have appealed for witnesses after a woman was assaulted on the Buckland Estate in Newton Abbot on Saturday 10 August.

Officers are investigating a report of robbery in which the victim was attacked in the Grenville Close area at around 11pm. She was punched, kicked and stamped on during the incident and had items, including a purse, stolen from her.

The victim, aged in her 20s, received injuries to her face and upper body. She has received medical treatment and is currently recovering with support.

Detective Sergeant Kay Deer said: “This attack is not thought to be random and we believe the suspects may have known the victim. Police do not have reason to believe that any other attacks are likely, but would, however, warn people to be vigilant.

“If anyone has any information, or saw anything suspicious, please contact police on 101 and quote crime reference CR/72349/19.”

Two local men and one female have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and GBH and at this time remain in police custody for questioning.
