A 'good Samaritan' fractured his shoulder after attempting to intervene in an argument.

At around 7.50pm on Tuesday, June 20, the victim – a man aged in his 40s – was cycling along London Road in Tring when he intervened in an altercation involving two women in a blue hatchback car and a man, who may have been a pedestrian.

He was then shouted at by the man and chased into the cricket field opposite Tesco. While trying to get away from the man the victim fell off his bicycle and suffered a fractured shoulder.

Detective Constable Jim MacPherson, who is investigating, said: “This man was being a good Samaritan when he intervened as he was concerned for the welfare of the women but as a result he has been left with a painful injury.

“I’m appealing to anyone who saw this incident to get in touch and I’m also keen to speak to the two women who were in the blue hatchback car as they could have information that could assist this investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC MacPherson via the Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference D3/17/487.
