Main article content
Detectives investigating an incident in Leicester during which a van driver was assaulted are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
It happened at around 10.50am on Easter Sunday (4 April) on Hinckley Road, at the crossroad with Braunstone Lane and Ratby Lane.
The driver of the van - a man in his 40s – had got out of his vehicle to speak to a group of people. He was subsequently punched and kicked by members of the group and suffered serious facial injuries. The group then left the scene.
Detective Constable Sian Harris-Ley, from West Leicester CID, said: “The van driver was travelling along the A47 towards the city and had pulled up at the traffic lights.
“This happened on a busy route in and out of the city and I would like to speak to any other motorists – particularly anyone with a dashcam in their vehicle – who saw what happened. I’d also like to speak to anyone who was walking along Hinckley Road and witnessed this incident.
“Please cast your mind back to Sunday morning. Any information you have could help my investigation.”
