Between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on Thursday 15th January 2015 a 41 year old man was walking from Alfred Rose Park to Elmhurst Road in Aylesbury when he was approached from behind.
Offenders hit the man on the back of his head and back before fleeing the scene.
The victim managed to struggle home and alerted the emergency services. The victim sustained seven stab wounds and is being treated at hospital.
At this stage of the investigation there is no description of the offenders, nor can the number of offenders be confirmed. The assault is being investigated as an incident of grievous bodily harm.
Investigating officer, PC Amy Fox based at Force CID in Aylesbury said: ‘I would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious near or in the vicinity of Alfred Rose Park last night to call police immediately via 101.
I am specifically appealing to anyone with information about a silver Vauxhall Corsa that was seen in the area around the time of the offence. The vehicle was an older Corsa model and may or may not be connected to the crime, so I would urge people to contact the Force so we can resolve this issue.
I would also like to reassure the public in Aylesbury that incidents such as these are extremely rare and that we are conducting a thorough investigation into the incident.
