A GOOD Samaritan who helped rescue a man out from the canal in Stratford after he was pushed in is being sought by police.

The incident happened around 11pm on Tuesday June 26 along the canal towpath on the Birmingham Road near to the Premier Inn.

The victim – a man in his twenties – was riding his mountain bike when he was pushed causing him to fall into the canal.

He sustained a broken jaw during the incident and was unable to provide a description of the person who pushed him.

Warwickshire Police are keen to speak with the Good Samaritan who helped the man in the aftermath of the assault or anyone else who may have witnessed the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 491 of June 26 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
