logo-surrey-police-darkBGThe incident happened at 10.30am on the A320 just prior to the roundabout with Woodlands Road, near Slyfield Industrial Estate.

It involved a small car, thought to be a silver Nissan Micra, which stopped at a pedestrian crossing in front of a white lorry.

Officers have been told that the two drivers got out and approached each other, at which point it is alleged the driver of the silver vehicle assaulted the lorry driver. He then drove away towards Belfields, along Hazel Avenue. The 44-year-old lorry driver suffered a fractured cheekbone as a result of the incident.

The driver of the silver vehicle is described as Asian, between 30 and 40 years old, with a short beard and short black hair.

Detective Sergeant Jim Strugnell from Guildford CID said: “This was a nasty incident which left the lorry driver needing surgery. It happened on a busy road next to a petrol station so we believe there may have been a number of witnesses that we urgently need to speak to.

“I would ask that if you saw either of these vehicles prior to the incident, particularly the manner of their driving as they approached the Slyfield area on the A320 from the Stoke crossroads area, to get in touch.”

Anyone who has any information can contact Surrey Police by calling 101 (999 in an emergency) quoting the reference number 45150009957.

Collision between cyclist and car driver, February 3

The police are also appealing for witnesses following a collision involving a cyclist and the driver of a white Toyota Hilux in Guildford town centre on Tuesday, February 3.

The collision took place at around 5.55pm on the A281 at the junction with Millbrook and Guildford High Street, near the pedestrian crossing.

Officers are particularly appealing to a couple of witnesses who spoke to the cyclist following the collision.

The cyclist suffered minor injuries but he did not require medical attention.

If you witnessed the collision, or have any other information which could assist the investigation, call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference P15030132.

A woman suffered a leg injury after being assaulted in the early hours of Sunday, February 1, outside the doors of Guildford’s Friary centre, near the taxi rank.
