Machete Attack in Hadleigh

Scrub Lane Junction

A frightening attack recently took place in Hadleigh involving an unidentified male attacker and an innocent driver.

The 37-year-old man was assaulted by a violent thug armed with a machete at precisely 8.15pm on Friday January 11th. This occurred whilst the victim waited at traffic lights in his car.

The wounded man endured cuts to his hand and arm whilst he waited at the junction of Scrub Lane and Rectory Road, just a short work from Hadleigh high street.

The suspect knocked on the victim’s car window and demanded that he get out of his car. The victim refused, leading to a dispute.

Thankfully, the driver was able to drive away to escape further harm, leaving the attacker at the scene, standing in the middle of the road.

The attacker was reported as being white, with dark brown hair, of a stocky build and wearing a t-shirt.

Any witnesses in the area at 8.15pm on January 11th and remember seeing someone of this description, please contact contact Dc Rory Scarlett at Southend CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
