Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after an ambulance was targeted earlier this evening (September 15) in Frimley.
Officers believe an object may have been thrown or fired at the vehicle as it drove along the A325 in Frimley around 6-30pm, causing the inner windscreen to shatter. The driver, who was transporting a patient to Frimley Park Hospital, is being treated at the same hospital for injuries to his eyes caused by the glass. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing.
Sergeant Geoff Gilbert, who is dealing with the incident, said: “It is not clear at this stage what has been thrown or fired at the vehicle but it has caused the inside layer of the windscreen to shatter. Thankfully the driver’s injuries are not thought to be serious, and his crewmate and patient they were transporting escaped unhurt. However, this could have been a lot more serious and we are really keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time to come forward straightaway.”
If you can help, please contact Surrey Police on 101 quoting incident reference P14268336, or if you would prefer not to leave your name, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
