A police spokesman said that his injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.

The spokesman said: “Detectives are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or anyone who may have any information or CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage, to contact them on 101, quoting incident number 2200031003.”
