People of Tarporley and local villages please share this.
This morning, at approximately 4.45am, our milkman Rob was approached by two youths aged about 15/16, both males on Eaton Lane, Tarporley just up from the junction with Cobblers Cross. They asked him for a lift and tried to steal goods off the back of his float, but when he refused one of the them stabbed Rob in the stomach then made off on foot. They were asking for a lift to Tiverton, so obviously local.
This is someone's son, someone's brother and someone will know who has done this and they need to be caught and punished, as no one should ever have to go through what Rob did this morning.
Rob has a nasty wound to the stomach but he is ok and even wanted to finish off his round.
Let's get this scum caught and off the streets.
