Did you witness man beaten up with scaffold pole in Hemel Hempstead

Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an assault on two men in their car in Hemel Hempstead.

A man suffered serious injuries, including the loss of sight in one eye.

On Sunday 26 June, at around 10pm two men approached the vehicle parked in Thumpers, smashing the front window and attacked the passenger with a metal scaffolding pole, causing numerous lacerations to his face and a serious injury to his eye.

A second man bashed the driver, giving him a broken nose.

Detective Constable Gemma Ball, who is investigating, said: “This unprovoked attack has left the victim with serious injuries – he sustained a broken tibia and a broken elbow, and has permanently lost sight in one of his eyes.“This happened in a residential area, and it is likely that several people may have witnessed it or overhead the commotion. If you have any information and have not yet spoken to police, please get in contact as soon as possible. Even something that may seem relatively minor or insignificant could be key to progressing our investigation.”
