Victim breaks legs in escape
Published 26/11/12



A MAN broke his legs after jumping out of a first-floor window to escape thugs who forced their way into a flat in Henley.

The 24-year-old landed on a brick wall outside the building in Reading Road in the incident in the early hours of Saturday.

Two other men in the flat were attacked with a tyre iron by a gang of three men.

Police said the victims knew their attackers, who were in their twenties, and that the incident was sparked off by an argument over a woman.

The man who broke his legs was taken by ambulance to the Royal Berkshire hospital in Reading The other two victims, both 24, suffered minor injuries. One was hit over the head with the metal tool.


No arrests have been made but police have been given the name of one suspect.

Insp Mark Harling, head of Henley police, said: “I want to reassure people that there is not a group of people wandering around Henley knocking on people’s doors carrying iron bars.

“Although distressing for those involved and the neighbours, this was a dispute between friends.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
