An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following an assault in High Wycombe during which a man suffered a broken jaw.
On Saturday 19th December 2020, between 12.00pm and 12.30pm, a man was walking along Green Street near to Super Food and Wine.
The pedestrian found his route was blocked by a large silver or dark coloured van so the pedestrian asked the driver to move the van. However the van driver became aggressive, got out of the van, punched the man in the face and drive off in the direction of the town centre.
The pedestrian walked into the shop. During the assault the pedestrian sustained a broken jaw and nerve damage to his lip which required treatment at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
The van driver involved in the incident is described as man in his forties, approximately 5ft 8ins tall with short black, greying hair. He was wearing a black top and dark coloured jeans and spoke with an accent that sounded Romanian or Bulgarian.
Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Rachel Peddie, based at High Wycombe police station, said: ‘This was an unprovoked incident which left the victim with serious injuries so I want to hear from anyone who may have information about the circumstances of this assault.
We believe that two people were walking along Green Street and then changed their route because of the incident. I am keen to speak to these individuals as it’s likely that they will have information that could prove vital to this investigation.
If you have any information or dash-cam footage, please get in touch using our online form or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43200433049.
