Police appealing for witnesses after a dangerous assault

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident of grievous bodily harm in Gerrards Cross.

On Friday 31 July at around 10pm, a staff member of Ethorpe Hotel in Packhorse Road asked asking a customer to leave the premises.  The customer did not comply with this request, causing another member of staff, a man in his twenties, to step in.

This man was then punched in the head and violently pushed to the ground. As he tried to get up from the ground, another man struck him in the face with an unknown object, before two women assaulted him and tried to restrain him as he attempted to defend himself.

After the altercation, the group left the area.

The victim involved sustained a laceration to his forehead that required stitches, a puncture wound to his cheek, bruising to his knees and grazes to his hands. He was taken to hospital where he received immediate treatment, and has since been discharged.

The Police are appealing for any information that the public may have about this incident.

  • The first offender is described as a white man, in his early thirties, well built and approximately 6ft tall. He had short blond hair, was clean shaven and was wearing a white t-shirt.
  • The second offender is described as a white man, in his late twenties, of slim build. He also had short blond hair, was clean shaven and was wearing a blue t-shirt with white lines on it.
