Hackpen Hill (Wiltshire)


Cyclist attacked by men and dog on Hackpen Hill

An 18-year-old cyclist suffered severe facial injuries after being attacked by three men and bitten by their dog.

The teenager was riding up Hackpen Hill near Broad Hinton, Wiltshire, on Sunday afternoon when he stopped at the top to have a cigarette.

Police said three men in their 40s approached him and punched and kicked him. Their dog, described as large and brown, then bit his arm and face.

The men stole his mountain bike before running off towards a nearby car park.

Now you mention it, the car park does have that dodgy dealings atmosphere. It's not even on a main road like the one at [[The Sanctuary]] and I wouldn't leave anything worth nicking on view. But you can't let paranoia and the occasional senseless incident stop you from getting out, can you?(?) Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
