Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in Newport Pagnell.

 

At about 9am on Friday, March 23, a 32-year-old delivery driver was delivering a parcel in Lamb Close, Newport Pagnell.

As the driver, who is black, got out of his van to deliver the parcel, a white man who was parked nearby got out of his van and started to shout that the delivery driver had blocked the road. The man allegedly proceeded to shout racist abuse at the victim, who went back to his van to move it. As he got back into his van, the offender approached the driver’s side window and punched him in the face.

The victim got out of this van and a scuffle broke out. The victim was punched twice in the ribs before the offender drove off in his van.

The victim was not injured in the incident.

Police have traced the driver of the other vehicle, a 54-year-old man, and carried out a voluntary interview with him.

Officers are keen to trace anyone who was in the area of Lamb Close, Newport Pagnell on March 23 and witnessed the offence, or anyone with any information about the incident.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Shantell Woodward via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
