Witness appeal following racially aggravated assault in Stevenage

25 Nov 2021
  • Witnesses to a racially aggravated assault in Stevenage are being sought.

  • The incident took place between two drivers on Coreys Mill Lane at around 12.30pm on Thursday 4 November. 

  • Call 101 quoting 41/86123/21 if you can help.

We are appealing for witnesses and information following a racially aggravated assault in #Stevenage.

At around 12.30pm on Thursday 4 November, a grey VW car and a white van were involved in a collision just off the A1M junction 8 roundabout on Hitchin Road.

The VW and the van pulled into Coreys Mill Lane and stopped at the first junction on the left, by a small car park.

The driver of the VW is reported to have then used racially offensive language to the other driver and spat in his face.

He is described as a white man, aged in his 50s or 60s, with grey hair and he had a walking stick with him.

PC Olivia Evenden, who is investigating, said: “I’m appealing to anyone who may have witnessed either the collision or the following deplorable incident near to the Lister Hospital to make contact with me.

“It is understood members of the public assisted the van driver on Coreys Mill Lane, if that was you I’d like to hear from you.

“We would like to identify the driver of the VW so if you saw what happened or have dash cam footage of it please contact me directly via email (opens in new window).”
