Appeal for information after incident of grievous bodily harm in Banbury

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after an incident of grievous bodily harm in Banbury.

The victim, a 38-year-old man, was near Jubilee Court at the junction with George Road when he was approached by a man at about 2:50 pm on Wednesday 27 January 2016.

The man then assaulted the victim, stabbing him in the stomach with what is believed to be a black handled lock knife.

The offender then took £200 in cash from the victim before fleeing the scene in a silver BMW 1 Series 2010 model.

The offender is black, in his forties, slim, about 5ft 7ins, with short dark coloured hair and a thick beard.

He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and black coloured footwear.

The victim received treatment at the John Radcliffe Hospital but has since been discharged.

Investigating officer, Det Con Richard Lewis of Force CID based at Banbury, said:

“This is a shocking assault but I want to reassure the community that we are conducting a thorough investigation to find the perpetrator and bring him to justice.

“Incidents such as these are rare and on this occasion we believe that the offender may know the victim.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, to contact police immediately by calling 101.

“If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”
