Man in hospital after unprovoked attack in Salisbury

A MAN was attacked in an unprovoked incident in Salisbury on Sunday.

The 38-year-old victim was walking along Pinewood Way, Bemerton Heath, at about 2.30am when he was assaulted by another man.

The man hit the victim to the back of the head with what was believed to be a branch from a tree and then stamped on him while he was on the ground. Prior to this the suspect had said something similar to “you are the man who ran over the girl”.

This may relate to a road traffic collision that took place in Pinewood Way in May, but the attacker was mistaken as the victim in this attack cannot drive. The victim has some serious injuries and is currently being treated at Salisbury District Hospital.

DC Mark Lewis at Salisbury CID would like to hear from anybody who witnessed this incident or has any information that could assist in identifying the offender. Contact DC Lewis on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
