Canterbury Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the Basingstoke Street / Wimborne Crescent area of Christchurch at around 3am this morning (14 April 2015).
A 22 year old man was taken to Christchurch Hospital this morning with a suspected broken leg after three men entered his address and took a small amount of cash and a cell phone. The men were described as wearing balaclavas but the victim was unable to provide any further description. It is possible the three men left the scene together in one vehicle.
The victim is yet to be interviewed by Police as he is undergoing surgery today.
Anyone who saw any vehicles or a group of three men in the Basingstoke Street / Wimborne Crescent area around 3am this morning are asked to call Canterbury Police on 03 363 7400.
Information can also be provided anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
