Man hit with shoe in attack

Have your say

A MAN was pushed over a garden wall and hit over the head with a shoe in a bizarre attack in broad daylight.

The attack on the 66-year-old stopped only because two witnesses saw what was happening and intervened. The thug, dressed all in black, was an unshaven, stocky, white man, aged 35 to 40, wearing a bobble hat, a zip-up hooded top, trousers and boots. Police said the victim was targeted on Valley Road in Worksop at around 8.45am on Monday January 10.

A YOUNG man escaped from his flat unharmed after clothes he was drying in front of a fire went up in flames. The man, in his 20s, discovered the fire and removed the burning clothes before firefighters arrived at his home on Exeter Drive, Broomhall. The flat was ventilated before he was allowed back in.
