Alert message sent 11/07/2017 09:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing to speak to the victims and any witnesses following a robbery in Reading.

At around 3am on Saturday (8/7), a group of men were seen robbing two other men of what appeared to be a quantity of cash in Broad Street, Reading.

The robbery was interrupted by a 20-year-old man and two of his friends, who chased one of the offenders on Broad Street. The offender then stabbed the 20-year-old man in the head multiple times, causing injuries which required hospital treatment. The victim has since been discharged.

Investigating officers would like to speak to the two victims of the robbery to assist with the investigation. They are believed to be white males.

Detective Constable Nathan Lampard, based at Reading police station, said: “We are investigating this incident, which we believe to be a robbery where the victim tried to help and intervene, and ended up being seriously assaulted.

“We would like to speak to the two victims of the initial robbery and we would also like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed either of the offences which took place, to help with our enquiries.

“If you have any information, please call Thames Valley Police on 101, quoting incident reference 43170200529.”
