Detectives investigating a reported robbery in Weymouth are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Dorset Police received a call at 4.43am on Wednesday 27 April 2022 relating to an alleged robbery at the junction of Knightsdale Road and Newstead Road, near to The Marsh playing fields. The victim, a man aged in his 20s, was reportedly assaulted and his phone and car keys were stolen.

It was reported that his car – a black Ford Fiesta Zetec – was then taken from his home address nearby. The vehicle was found later the same morning nearby in Baycliffe Road.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to facial injuries.

An investigation into the incident was launched by detectives from Weymouth CID and two local 17-year-old boys have been arrested on suspicion of robbery. One of the boys has also been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

Detective Inspector Nicky Jenkins, of Weymouth CID, said: “Our investigation into this reported robbery is ongoing and I would urge anyone with information that might assist our enquiries to please come forward. I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area of Knightsdale Road and Newstead Road in the early hours of Wednesday 27 April 2022, or anyone who may have captured anything relevant on dashcam or home CCTV systems.

“Finally, if anyone has come across a Ford car key with a gold house key and photo of a child in the area of Baycliffe Road or Markham Road, we would ask that they leave them where they are and contact the police to arrange for collection.”
