THREE balaclava clad attackers beat up a man in a cul-de-sac.

The man in his 40’s was getting out of his vehicle, accompanied by his partner, when the dark dressed trio struck in Birds Close, WGC.

The victim was repeatedly attacked before the group ran off towards Caponfield, and the woman called for help.

The man was later taken to hospital with serious injuries to his hand.

DC Dave Riggs is investigating and said: “We are looking into the possibility that this was a premeditated assault.

“I am keen to determine whether there were any witnesses to this incident and would ask anyone who believes they may have seen this incident take place, or the men running from the scene to contact me.”

The incident happened on Wednesday, January 26.

Call police with information on 0845 33 00 222.
