We believe three violent offences in Ashbourne that took place in the space of little more than an hour to be linked.

At around 11.40pm on Wednesday, July 11, two men are alleged to have approached and threatened a 17-year-old boy on Wynaston Road before making off with a quantity of cash.

Around half an hour later, at 12.15am on Thursday, July 12, an 18-year-old man suffered a serious shoulder injury after being thrown to the ground during an altercation involving two small groups of people on Old Hill.

Then, at around 12.50am, three men and a woman approached and assaulted a 39-year-old man on Mayfield Road before making off with a quantity of cash.

One of the men believed to be involved in all three instances is described as a man in his late teens, 6ft 2ins tall, with blonde hair and wearing a baseball cap.
