Appeal after dog stolen in Horndean robbery

Alert message sent 05/08/2021 10:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


We are furthering our appeal for witnesses after a dog was stolen in a robbery in Horndean.

The incident happened at around 5.55pm on Tuesday, 3 August, on Stonechat Road.

A 13-year-old boy was walking his dog when an unknown man asked for the dog’s name. He then forcefully took the dog and made off in a blue car with another unknown man.

The boy was uninjured and the dog has since been returned.

Detective Constable Lucy Allan said: “This was a very upsetting incident for the boy and the family, and we are very grateful that Melchy has been returned.

“However, we are still investigating this serious incident and would ask anyone with information to come forward to help us identify the suspects.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who saw a blue car in the area at the time, with two men inside, who might be able to provide us with some further information.

“Perhaps you have dash-cam or private CCTV that could assist our enquiries?

“Anyone with information can phone 101 and give the reference number 44210308384. Thank you.”
