We have charged three men after a man was assaulted in Tarbock Green on Sunday morning (26 July).
We were called to private land off Netherley Road at 7.20am where it was reported a man had been threatened with a knife by three men. Another man then approached the three men and it was reported he too was threatened before being chased to the junction of Netherley Road and Ox Lane.
A blue Citroen Picasso car was then driven at the victim on Ox Lane, striking him, before the same three offenders left the vehicle holding a sickle, a spade and a hammer. One threw the hammer towards him and the offenders then assaulted him with the sickle and spade while making further verbal threats.
Officers attended, detained three men and recovered a sickle, hammer and spade for forensic examination.
The victim, a 50-year-old man, sustained a gash to the head, a broken arm and puncture wounds to his arm. He was taken to hospital where his condition is described as stable.
