Thames Valley Police is releasing images of a man officers wish to speak to as they believe he may have vital information about an assault and bilking in Milton Keynes.
At 9.45pm last night (5/6), the driver of a car on false plates put fuel in it at the BP garage on the H6 Childs Way in central Milton Keynes.
The driver attempted to leave the forecourt without paying, which a member of staff noticed so they tried to stop them.
The driver hit the member of staff, a man in his forties, with the car before driving off.
The victim suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital for further treatment, where he remains in a stable condition.
Detective Inspector Rachel Wheaton, of Milton Keynes CID, said: “I am appealing to anybody who recognises this man to please get in touch with us as we believe he may have vital information about this assault.
