Police have launched a witness appeal after a boy was injured when a car was apparently deliberately driven at him in High Wycombe.

The incident occurred on Thursday 7th December 2017 at approximately 3.20pm in Hennerton Way, Micklefield, High Wycombe. A green Vauxhall Corsa was involved in a collision with a pedestrian, following the collision a group of males ran from the vehicle.

The pedestrian, a 16 year old boy, sustained a broken leg and was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital by ambulance for treatment.

Detective Sergeant Michael Anderson, of Force CID based at High Wycombe, said: ‘Detectives are investigating this serious incident in which we believe a vehicle has been deliberately driven at a 16 year old boy. He has been receiving treatment for his injuries.

This appears to have been a targeted incident however people locally may notice additional officers in the area while we work to establish the circumstances.

I would like to appeal for anyone who has any information about what happened or who saw anything which could help the investigation, to come forward and speak to officers.

On Thursday 7th December 2017 police arrested a 15 year old boy from High Wycombe on suspicion of GBH, he has been released under investigation. On Friday 8th December 2017 a 19 year old man and a 17 year old boy were arrested on suspicion of GBH, they were released with no further action.
