Bat­tered milk­man has float hi­jacked

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MILK­MAN lost two teeth when he was at­tacked and had his milk float stolen.

The at­tacker, who was with two other men, also stole the vic­tim’s wal­let and dam­aged bot­tles, cops in Cam­bridgeshire have con­firmed.

The milk­man, aged in his 50s, was at­tacked while work­ing his round in Stan­ground, Peter­bor­ough at 3.45am yes­ter­day.

He no­ticed a group of three men near his float, be­fore one at­tempted to steal a crate of milk.

When chal­lenged he as­saulted the milk­man.

The three men then hi­jacked the float, which was re­cov­ered around six miles away.

The un­named vic­tim re­ceived hos­pi­tal treat­ment fol­low­ing the un­pro­voked at­tack and was later dis­charged.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for help in trac­ing the at­tack­ers.
