Trucker assaulted at truck stop


Police are looking for two suspects after a truck driver suffered multiple injuries during an assault in Blandford-Blenheim Township.

The Ontario Provincial Police said on July 8 shortly before 2:45 p.m., a transport truck driver was travelling west on Highway 401 when the driver noticed a pick-up truck travelling alongside the transport. Police said the passenger of the pickup appeared to be upset and was making hand gestures in front of the transport truck driver.

The transport truck driver later pulled off the highway at a truck stop located on Oxford Road 29 where he was assaulted by two people. The driver suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said.

The suspects are described to be male, possibly in their 20s, and they were both wearing t-shirts. Their vehicle is described as a white pick-up truck with a steel box in the bed of the truck.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or can identify the suspects is asked to contact the Oxford County OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
