A man remains in police custody after a police officer and two pedestrians were hit by a vehicle outside of a Sainsbury’s store in Exeter at around 17:00 hours yesterday (12th March).
The 30-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder, assaulting a police officer and dangerous driving.
Police have asked members of the public who were in the area at the time to check their dashcam footage if they were in the Sainsbury’s (Pinhoe) car park.
The injuries of the three victims are not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing.
DI Dawn Perriam (Devon & Cornwall Police) said:
“We would like to thank members of the public who came forward to assist in the incident, many of whom we have spoken to and taken statements from.
“We would also like to thank the staff at Sainsbury’s for all their help.
“I am now appealing for anyone who took mobile phone footage or anyone who has dashcam footage of the incident to come forward and submit this to us.”
“A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, dangerous driving and assaulting a police officer”.
