Appeal for witnesses following GBH - Reading

Alert message sent 16/03/2017 18:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses or information following an incident of grievous bodily harm in Reading on Sunday (12/3).

At around 3.10pm, a 25-year-old man was running on the pavement in Kings Road in the direction of Cemetery Junction when he was involved in a verbal altercation with the driver of a white car.

The driver then followed the victim, before he exited his car and chased the victim on foot down Kings Road, near the junction of Kingsgate Street.

The victim was then assaulted by the driver, which caused him to sustain a broken collar bone and cuts and grazes. The injuries required hospital attendance.

The offender is described as a white man in his forties, around 5ft 9ins, of stocky build, who had little or no hair. He was driving a white car which was similar to a 4x4.

Investigating officer, Det Con Marius York from Reading Force CID, said: “This incident took place at a busy time of day, in a location where we believe there would have been a number of witnesses.

"We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident, including a family who stopped their car and spoke to the victim straight after the assault.

“If you have any information, please call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101, quoting incident number 43170073112.”

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers (opens new window) anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court
