Police make second appeal for information following assault and robbery at Royal Welsh

DYFED-Powys Police is continuing to investigate a report of a robbery at the Royal Welsh Showground, which occurred between 11pm and midnight on Tuesday, July 23.

An elderly man – aged in his 70s – reported being punched to the face and having items stolen near the toilets of the campsite at Lower North 12.

The victim reported three men being involved in the robbery.

At just before midday on Wednesday, July 24, a friend became concerned for the welfare of the victim as he had not been seen since Tuesday night. He was reported as missing to police, and officers began searching the showground to locate him.

A police dog found him in a hedge near to the toilet and shower block at around 3.10pm that day – he then reported the robbery to officers.

The victim sustained a minor facial injury from the assault, but needed medical treatment for more considerable injuries sustained to his arms from the brambles.

Officers investigating the incident have carried out extensive enquiries, and are now appealing for anyone who has information that might help to come forward.

In particular, we are keen to identify three men who may have Irish accents located near the toilets at Lower North 12 – which is located near entrance F, at the far end of the showground near the cattle sheds – between 11pm and midnight.
