Preston Police have taken to Facebook to make an appeal for any witnesses after an axe attack in Moor Park.
The attack took place this afternoon (Friday 13th – Yikes), with one man being assaulted by a group of men at around 5.30pm. The man suffered from an attack to his hand by what’s understood to be an axe.
Preston Police said; “This has been a serious attack which happened in broad daylight, and I’d like to appeal to any witnesses, or anyone who saw anything suspicious, to come forward immediately. We know the park was busy at the time of the assault and are particularly keen to speak to two groups of potential witnesses. This includes two men and a woman who were walking with a pram, and a man who was wearing a high-vis top and walking a black Labrador”.
