Man injured after being pushed into moving traffic in Reading

A man has suffered serious injuries to his head and arm after being pushed into moving traffic in Reading.

Thames Valley Police said they believe two male teenagers pushed the 48-year-old into the road at Langley Hill in Calcot at approximately 11.30pm on Saturday (8 June).

When the victim reached the junction with Voller Drive he got into an altercation with the two teenagers, one of whom had a bicycle.

Police believe that the victim was then pushed by the teenagers into the road and into the path of a moving vehicle, which he collided with.

The victim sustained serious injuries to his head and arm and had to go to hospital.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Dean Brown of Force CID said:

“Our priority in this investigation is to identify and locate the two teenagers who the victim had an altercation with.

"I believe that someone will know who these two teenagers are.

“The males are described as in their mid to late teens.

"They were both wearing dark clothing.

"One of the teenagers had a dark coloured bicycle.

“Do you know these teenagers, have they confided in you about the incident, or have you seen someone disposing of clothes or a bicycle? If you have any information please contact police.

“We also want to speak to any motorists who drove in or around Langley Hill last night (Saturday) between about 11pm and 11.30pm, especially if you have dashcam footage.

“A thorough investigation is underway and we have officers in the area conducting house to house enquiries, forensic examinations and obtaining CCTV and reviewing CCTV.”
