The 18-year-old from Winchester was arrested yesterday (Wednesday 20 January) on suspicion of:

The arrest is in relation to the following incidents:

  • On Monday 11 January at around 1.20am, a group of men forced entry into a property on Cressy Road and demanded money from the occupants. The men left without taking anything. No-one was injured.
