Third man arrested over racially motivated car attack on NHS worker

A THIRD man has been arrested in connection with a racially motivated attack on an NHS worker outside a hospital in Bristol, police revealed today. 

The 21-year-old musician, who wishes only to be referred to as K, was mowed down after finishing work at Southmead Hospital on July 22. 

He was left with serious injuries, including a broken leg, nose and cheekbone. 

On Sunday, a 22-year-old was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, a day after two other men were also arrested in connection with the incident. 

Police are treating the attack as racially motivated because the driver was heard yelling racist abuse before hitting K. 

The young musician has spoken out about the effect the attack has had on his life.

“I don’t feel safe to walk outside and I can’t play football, record my music, go to the gym or even sleep – I have to try to sleep sitting up,” he said.

“We will bounce back as a family, this will make us stronger. We won’t let the haters win.”
