Main article content
Officers investigating an assault in Tring are appealing for information and witnesses.
It happened in the car park behind Marks and Spencers, off Frogmore Street, between 3pm and 3.15pm on Thursday 21 September.
The victim, a man aged in his 70s, was waiting to park his car in a disabled bay when he and another driver had an altercation.
Both drivers exited their vehicles and the suspect – described as a white male wearing glasses, aged in his 40s, and of large build – verbally threatened the victim, before punching him in the face and throwing him to the ground.
The suspect then got back into his car and drove off while good Samaritans attended to the victim, who suffered injuries to his face, arm and hand as a result of the attack.
PC Olivia Finlay, who is investigating, said: “The victim was left understandably shaken by what happened, but thankfully in the aftermath he was assisted by kind passers-by.
“We’re doing everything we can to identify the person responsible and are now appealing for anyone who believes they may have information, but has not yet spoken to us, to please come forward.
“This incident happened at a busy time of day when people would have been collecting their children from the nearby primary school, so please get in touch with us if you can help.”
