What happened?

A man reported that he was driving a VW Caddy along Old Road in Leconfield when he came across what looked like a road traffic collision.

A motorcyclist was laid in the road with another man looking after him.  The driver stopped and opened his window to ask if he could assist at which point one of the men is alleged to have assaulted the driver and the other stole two mobile phones from within the van by opening the passenger door.

The driver drove quickly away from the scene and reported the incident to us. He has been left with a serious wound to his arm which needed hospital treatment.
Appeal and warning to drivers –

Detective Inspector Andy Crawforth said, “I would like to appeal for witnesses to the incident or for anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time.

“The victim said that the men spoke with Liverpool accents and that he may have injured one as he drove away.

“I am also reminding members of the public to express caution if they come across a road traffic collision, especially during the hours of darkness.  If you are alone in your car please exercise caution if you feel it is safe to stop, ensure you do not put yourself at any risk. Remain in your vehicle with the doors and windows closed and locked so you can assess what is going on prior to doing anything else.  Call the police when safe to do so. Please consider the use of the What Three Words app to help point the location if in a rural setting”
