Did you witness alleged baseball bat assault in Derby?

Posted on 16th July 2018

We are appealing for witnesses after an alleged baseball bat attack on Airedale Walk in the Alvaston area of Derby.

The incident occurred sometime between 5.20pm and 5.40pm on Monday, July 2.

We believe an altercation had taken place between two men on Kedholme Lane a few minutes earlier.

One of them is thought to have returned on a push scooter and attacked the 41-year-old alleged victim with a bat, causing hand and head injuries that required hospital treatment.

DC Clare Larkworthy said: “The area would have been busy at that time of day. Somebody must have seen what happened and been shocked by it.

“If you did witness the incident, please come forward and assist our investigation.”
