Police are appealing for a Good Samaritan to come forward after he gave a lift to an injured man, thought to have been the victim of an assault.

Between 11am and 12.30pm on Friday January 23, the 40-year-old man was picked up by a driver on New Hall Lane in Preston, just passed the Esso Garage.

The motorist then dropped the victim off on the corner of New Hall Lane and St Mary’s Street.

The driver is described as having short grey or white hair and was driving a blue car.

It is thought that earlier in the morning the 40-year-old had been robbed and assaulted.

He later went to Royal Preston Hospital where he was treated for a small cut to his head and a lower back injury.

DC Jane Thomas of Preston CID said: “We are keen to trace the Good Samaritan who offered the man a lift and anyone who was driving along Brockholes Brow or New hall Lane travelling into Preston on Friday between 11am and 12.30pm who may have seen the man at the side of the road.”

Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log number 0547 of January 23.
