An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following incident of grievous bodily harm in High Wycombe.
On Wednesday 26th May 2021, between 8.50pm and 9.30pm, a 22 year old man was at the KFC restaurant at Wycombe Retail Park, Ryemead Way when he was grabbed by two black men.
One of the two men punched the victim in the face and the other, whom the victim recognised, took a small kitchen knife from his waistband and stabbed the 22 year old man three times in his right buttock.
The 22 year old man ran off and was later taken to hospital for treatment, where he received stitches to his wound. He has since been discharged from hospital.
The man involved in the incident that the 22 year did not recognise is described as a black male, under 6ft in height with a large build and tight curly black hair.
