Two teenagers charged following Bristol incident that left PHV driver wounded

Two people were due in court today charged in connection with an incident in Bristol, earlier this week, which saw a private hire vehicle (PHV) driver injured.

A group of teenagers arrived in Choke Walk by minicab shortly after 9pm on Sunday 21 May. There was an altercation at a nearby residential property in which a car and a window of the home were damaged.

A resident from the property chased the group back to the PHV and in the process the driver, a man in his 50s, was wounded. He managed to drive away to West Town Lane, where he was found by patrolling officers at about 9.15pm. The teenagers had fled from the vehicle before officers arrived.

The driver went to hospital for treatment to his injury and was discharged to recover at home.

A 16-year-old boy is charged with affray, criminal damage and possession of an offensive weapon.

Another boy, 17, is charged with affray and criminal damage.

A girl, 16, arrested in connection with the incident has been released on conditional police bail pending further enquiries.

A third boy, aged 17, who was arrested on Sunday night on suspicion of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Officers still want to hear from anyone with information or dashcam or other footage which could help the ongoing investigation.
