Police are appealing for information and witnesses following an assault in Watford.
At around 8.25am on Thursday (February 28) the victim was stationary in traffic in his vehicle – an orange Honda CR-V on the A41, Colne Way, near to the junction for Asda when he felt a punch to his right arm. He had his window down at the time.
PC Thomas Coulton, who is investigating, said: “This attack came completely out of the blue with no interaction or altercation between the victim and the offender beforehand.
“The victim suffered two small puncture wounds to his arm which are believed to have been caused using a set of keys.
“Due to the nature of the assault the victim did not see the offender so I’m appealing for anyone who was also queuing in the traffic and witnessed the incident or believes they saw the offender approaching the car and/or making off to get in touch.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Coulton by emailing Thomas.firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/19333/19 or report information online at herts.police.uk/Report.
