Victim subjected to serious attack at garage in Fiddlers Green area

Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery at a remote garage in the Fiddlers Green area of St Newlyn East between 8.15pm and 9.20pm on Friday 21 August.

The male victim, aged in his 40s, was the subject of a serious attack by two men wearing balaclavas and armed with a machete and iron bar.

He suffered severe facial injuries and required hospital treatment. Some £300 in cash was stolen.

The victim managed to make his way to a nearby house to get help and recalls a white estate car swerving to avoid him in the road.

Detective Constable Emma Sandry said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who was visiting the Fiddlers Green area on the evening in question, particularly those that have dash-cameras.”

Both suspects are described as being white males, aged between 30 and 40, around 6ft in height and of average build. They were wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, or email 101@dc.police.uk, quoting crime reference CR/069706/20.
