Officers are appealing for witnesses after an incident in Wood Street, Old Town, Swindon on Friday.

At approximately 2.30pm on Friday 11 October, officers approached an occupant of a silver Mercedes ‘C’ class car that was parked in Wood Street.

As one of the police officers got close to the vehicle it accelerated away and the door mirror made contact with the officer's hand, fortunately he was not seriously injured and was able to remain on duty.

The Mercedes, which was on a "68 number plate," sped off towards Bath Road and was lost to sight. However, at midday yesterday (12/10) the vehicle was found abandoned in nearby Dixon Street.

Officers are asking anyone who witnessed the incident in Wood Street, saw a silver Mercedes driving erratically or possibly may know who the driver is to contact them on 101 quoting crime reference number 54190101378.
