Police are hunting an attacker who stabbed a man in his back at Britwell's Kennedy Park shops.

The attack happened on Sunday, 12 February 2017, at circa 16:30, but police kept the details secret until today - 11 days later.

Police say a 26 years-old man was stabbed in his back at the increasingly notorious Kennedy Park shops in Britwell's Long Furlong Drive.

The victim were treated at Wexham Park Hospital. For unknown reasons police are keeping secret the full details of the incident and the victim's injuries.

Frequently bored and disaffected youths are congregating outside the shops and also in the small field on the south (Northborough) side of the shops.

Locals fear the new shops are gradually attracting the drunks, criminally prone anti-social elements and their lemming-like supporters who made, in the former Wentworth Avenue shops, the area between the laundrette and the drinks shop (Wine Palace) an unpleasant, worrying and sometimes dangerous place especially in the evenings.

Police statement

Andrew Wroe, a detective constable based at Maidenhead, is keen to interview the man shown in these photographs. Mr Wroe said:

I would like to speak to the man in these CCTV images as I believe that he may have vital information that could assist us with our investigation.

Anyone who recognises him or has any other information can contact me via the police enquiry centre on 101 (or 01865-841 148).

The public can avoid talking to the police by giving their information confidentially and anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800-555 111.
