Warning from Detective Inspector Andy Crawforth following a recent incident.

We are warning drivers in our area of an incident that was reported to us in the early hours of Monday 23 September.
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.
Detective Inspector Andy Crawforth said, “We have launched investigation into this incident and are obtaining a statement
from the victim to establish the full circumstances. I would like to appeal for witnesses to the incident or for anyone who
saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area.
“The victim said that the men spoke with Liverpool accents and that he may have injured one as he drove away.
“I am also asking for 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”
