A MAN was attacked with baseball bats after a disagreement at a garage.

Police said on Monday at 12.30pm a 35-year-old man was filling up his car at an Esso petrol station in New Road, High Wycombe.

He saw another man filling his car with fuel, who then went inside to pay, and when he came out he had a disagreement with the victim.

The victim left the petrol station in his car, and as he came to the roundabout in Rutland Avenue, he saw a red Seat Leon with the man from the petrol station inside, which started following him.

The cars drove to Chiltern Avenue where three men got out of the Seat Leon and two of them assaulted the victim with baseball bats.

Another man intervened and the victim managed to get back into his car and flee to Pettifer Way. He was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The offenders were Asian but police said further descriptions are not available at this stage.

Det Con Joanne Castle, from High Wycombe Force CID, said: "We would like the man who approached the group while the victim was being assaulted and helped him, to come forward and identify himself to us.

"He could hold vital information about this incident. I would ask this man or any other witnesses to contact me on 101.

"It is believed the victim was known to the offender seen on the garage forecourt."

Anyone with information contact Det Con Joanne Castle on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
