Thames Valley Police have launched an appealing for information following an assault on a pedestrian in Castlefield, High Wycombe on Wednesday 7th October 2015.

At about 3.20pm a 56 year old man was walking outside of Castle Field Primary School in The Middleway when he accidentally stepped in front of a blue vehicle however no collision occurred.

The pedestrian was then in conversation with the driver who remained sitting in the car. The driver then punched the victim in the face through the window of the car before driving off at speed.

The victim sustained a cut to his lip and was treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He has since been discharged.

There is no description of the offender at this stage of the investigation.

Investigating officer, PC Christopher Weatherley of the patrol team based at High Wycombe Police Station, said: ‘I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in The Middleway at about 3.20pm last Wednesday to contact police by either visiting your local police station or by calling 101.

At this time parents would have been picking up their children from nearby Castle Field Primary School so there are a number of potential witnesses to the assault.
