Appeal for witnesses to GBH in Reading

Alert message sent 12/06/2018 09:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to an assault in Reading.

Officers were called at around 10.50pm on Friday (8/6) to The Butler public house in Chatham Street.

Two men, both aged 52, were assaulted in the courtyard area between the bar and the toilet by another man who ran in to the area.

One of the victims required stitches to a head wound and also sustained a broken collar bone, the other sustained eye and head injuries. Both were treated at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and have since been discharged.

Investigating officer PC James Bone, from Reading Investigation Hub, said: “This was a violent attack which left two men needing hospital treatment.

“We are appealing to anyone who saw what happened to come forward and contact us on 101.

“In particular, it’s believed a man came into the courtyard during the assault and saw what happened. It’s understood he then came to the victims' assistance by restraining a man.

“We would really like to speak to him and anyone who saw what happened before and during this incident.”

A 55-year-old man from Reading was arrested on suspicion of GBH and ABH and was released under investigation.
