Police appeal for witnesses after man rams car into campervan containing family at Moto Chieveley services on Saturday, December 23
Police have appealed for witnesses after a man rammed his car into a campervan containing a family at Chieveley services.
At around 3.15pm yesterday (Saturday), the offender, who had a knife, spoke to a family in their Ford Transit campervan that was parked in the coach park at Moto Chieveley services.
A man in his thirties in the campervan got out of the vehicle and challenged the offender.
The offender then got into his Land Rover Range Rover and drove at the man multiple times but missed before driving away.
However, the offender then came back in his car and rammed the campervan multiple times, which had the family inside, including a woman in her thirties and a child.
Officers attended swiftly and arrested a 42-year-old man from Slough on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm, affray, dangerous driving, and threatening behaviour.
He remains in police custody.
No one was injured but three cars were damaged.
DS Marcus Burrows said: “I understand this assault and affray may have been alarming for those who witnessed it and those hearing about it.
“However, thankfully, no one was injured and there is no ongoing risk to the public.
“We are investigating it thoroughly; we remain at the services as our enquiries continue, with a scene in place in the overflow car park.
“Anyone with concerns should speak to a uniformed officer.
“I am appealing for witnesses to any part of this incident to please come forward.
“The services was busy at the time so I imagine there are lots of people who witnessed it but have not spoken to us yet.
“Also, if you were driving in the car park around the time of the incident and have a dash-cam, please check any recordings in case it has captured something that could assist us and get in touch if you have.
“Anyone with information or footage should call 101 or make a report on our website, quoting reference number 43230573780.
“Alternatively provide information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via its website.
