Amended Appeal for witnesses to assault in Reading

Alert message sent 19/02/2019 13:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to an assault in Reading.
At around 10am yesterday (18/2) the victim, a 44 year old man, was walking along Kings Road when he was approached from behind by two men near to the college outside The Pinnacle. They knocked him to the ground and then kicked him a number of times before leaving the scene towards Rupert Street.
The victims suffered a deep cut to his face and back of his head. He was treated at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and has since been discharged.
The two offenders are white, aged in their twenties and were both wearing dark clothing.
Investigating officer PC Paul Mulvey of the Reading Investigation Hub, said: “This was an unprovoked attack on a man in broad daylight.
“We believe that there could be a number of witnesses who would be able to help officers with this investigation and would ask that if you saw what happened to get in touch.
“If you have any other information about this case, please contact us.”
Anyone with any details which could assist the investigation should contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting the reference 43190052046, or you can make a report online.
If you would prefer to remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Amendment - Reference number - 43190052046
