Alert message sent 14/07/2021 17:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


We are appealing for witnesses following an incident which occurred between 2.45pm and 3.30pm on Thursday 8 July on Church Road, Portsmouth.

It was reported to us at 3.15pm that four men, two of which are believed to have been holding knives, were seen running along Church Road in the direction of Commercial Road.

It’s not believed at this time that anybody was injured.

Officers attended and arrested two 19-year-old men from Portsmouth on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug and a Class B drug.

One of the men was additionally arrested on suspicion of acquiring/using/possessing criminal property.

They have both been released under investigation.

Officers have been following a number of lines of enquiry but would now like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw or heard anything.

We’re particularly keen to speak to two men who were seen in the area at the time.

The first is described as:

• Aged between 16 and 19-years-old
• 5foot 8inches in height
• Asian
• Of chubby build
• Black hair
• Wearing a blue hooded tracksuit top, matching blue bottoms and sliders with black socks.

The second is described as:

• Aged between 16 and 19-years-old
• 5foot 8 inches in height
• Black
• Of slim build
• Black hair
• Wearing a black puffer jacket with dark grey bottoms and black trainers with a white sole.

If you recognise these descriptions, or have any information that may assist our investigation then contact 101 quoting reference 44210269283.
