Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a man was pushed into moving traffic in Calcot.

The victim, a 48-year-old man, was walking down Langley Hill from the water tower at approximately 11.20pm last night (8/6).

When he reached the junction with Voller Drive he became embroiled in an altercation with two males, believed to be teenagers, one of whom had a bicycle.

Police believe that the victim was then pushed by the teenagers into the road and into the path of a moving vehicle, which he collided with.

The victim sustained serious injuries to his head and arm. He is currently in hospital in a stable condition.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Dean Brown of Force CID said: “Our priority in this investigation is to identify and locate the two teenagers who the victim had an altercation with. I believe that someone will know who these two teenagers are.
