Hertfordshire police are appealing for witnesses and information following the alleged assault of a man in Claymores, Stevenage, on Sunday, January 9.
The incident is believed to have taken place between 7pm and 7.25pm when a man in his 50s from Stevenage was assaulted in an address on the street. Following the assault the man left the address and walked to the junction at Popple Way where a member of the public found him and called the ambulance.
The man was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He currently remains there in a serious but stable condition.
Investigating officer, DS Gez Ellis, said: “I would like to reassure local residents that this incident is not believed to be a random attack.”
He added: “I am appealing for the member of the public who called the ambulance for the injured man to get in contact with us, as they could have information which could prove to be important to our investigation. I’d also be interested to speak to anyone else who was in the area and saw anything suspicious.”
Thirty-year-old Paul Scully, of no fixed abode, and 53-year-old Stephen Treavish, from Claymores, Stevenage, were arrested and charged with grievous bodily harm. They were detained in custody and appeared at Hatfield Remand Court today (January 11). They were remanded in custody and are due to appear at Cambridge Crown court on January 28.
Anyone with information is asked contact DS Ellis on the non-emergency number 0845 33 00 222.
