Assault Witnesses Sought

Police are appealing after a man was seriously assaulted on April 25th 2011 at about 7.15am on Osidge lane, London N14. The victim aged 38 had just parked his car in Manor drive, N14 on his way to work as a gardener. He was apparently waiting to cross Osidge Lane and witnesses might recall he was carrying a hammer and a garden fork in his hands. As he waited to cross a white car has stopped and flashed the car lights to allow him to cross. However as he began to cross the road the white car accelerated and struck the victim knocking him to the ground.
As he lay on the ground he was approached by three males who began a sustained attack. The victim was struck with a sprit level, threatened with blinding and received eye injuries, a broken bone in his leg and serious knee injuries that will require further surgery.
Police have arrested three men on suspicion of causing Grievous bodily harm, however the driver of the car is still being sought. DC Nick Harvey of the Community Safety Unit said "This man received serious injuries as a result of a prolonged assault and being struck by a car. Whoever was driving this car carried out an apparently intentional assault with his vehicle, the driver is dangerous and needs to be found. I would appeal to any witness to this incident to contact police with any information they have, no mater how small, this could be the piece of the puzzle that proves vital."
