Two more arrests have been made after a car was allegedly driven “deliberately” at a police officer, causing serious injury.

The officer was rushed to hospital after an incident on Saturday, June 1, when he reportedly approached the occupants of a white Dacia Jogger Expression parked in a field on Conscience Lane, near Devizes.

The vehicle then allegedly collided with the officer causing injuries that required hospital treatment.

He has since been discharged and will continue his recovery at home.

A 20-year-old man from Trowbridge has now been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with Intent, causing serious injury by dangerous driving, and other driving offences.

A 22-year-old woman from Bristol was also arrested on Friday, June 7, on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

Police have also seized the vehicle which is believed to have been used in the alleged assault.

A man in his 30s, from Twerton, had earlier been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, in connection to the incident, but has since been released without charge.

Detective Inspector Steve Edwards said: “This was a serious incident in which a police officer was injured during the course of his duties.

“Our investigation is continuing at pace, resulting in two further arrests and the location of a vehicle which is thought to have been involved.

“I would like to thank the public for their invaluable support in relation to our appeals for information.”

Detectives are continuing to appeal for any information relating to their investigation.

Anyone who knows anything about what happened has been urged to report it by calling 101 and quoting log number 383 of June 1.
