Police hunt sword attacker

Police say a man was attacked with a sword during an incident at a Crewe supermarket.

They say between 7.30pm and 7.55pm on Friday (4 January), a man walked into a supermarket on Nantwich Road and punched a 23-year-old man inside, before leaving the shop.

The suspect then returned to the supermarket a short time later armed with a sword, and attacked the same man inside.

The victim was able to defend himself and received a minor injury which required hospital treatment. The attacker left the scene empty handed.

Detective Inspector Claire Jesson, of Crewe CID, said: “The victim is incredibly lucky not to have been seriously injured following what was a really nasty attack.

“I have released CCTV images of two people we would like to speak to who could help with our investigation. I want to appeal to the public to come forward with any information – no matter how small to help us find those responsible.”

Please call Cheshire Police on 101, quoting IML 286616, give the details via https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
