Alert message sent 10/07/2018 10:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to an assault in Tilehurst, Reading.

It happened at the bus stop outside The Plough Inn public house on School Road at around 11.20pm on Saturday (7/7).

There was a verbal altercation and the victim, a 50-year-old man, was assaulted.

He was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital and transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital where he remains in a stable condition. He was treated for a leg and head injury.

The offender is described as a white man, around 25-years-old, 6ft 3ins tall of slim build.

Investigating officer Maggie Bruce of Force CID in Reading, said: “We are appealing for any witnesses to this assault.

“The area was pretty busy at the time due to the pubs closing, so we think a number of people will have seen or heard what happened.”

“We would especially like to talk to a second man who seemed to have stopped the assault, as he might have important information.”

“If anyone has dash-cam footage from the area at the time, we would really like to be able to see this as part of our investigation.”

“Please contact 101 and quote '43180206627' or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
