Police in Berkhamsted are appealing for the public’s help following an alleged serious assault in the town on Christmas Day.

It is believed an altercation occurred between two men at around 2.40am in the stairwell of a block of flats in Hilltop Road. As a result, one of the men – a 34 year old man from Berkhamsted – sustained serious injuries to his head.

As part of the investigation police are now appealing for the public’s help to trace any items that may be connected to the incident.

“We believe that there may be a number of things connected to this crime that are still outstanding and we are appealing for anyone that finds anything suspicious to contact the police immediately,” explains DI Justine Jenkins.

“We believe there may be clothing and implements used in the incident that still need to be traced.”
