  11. Couple 'sprayed with liquid' in drive-by assault

    A man and a woman were sprayed with an "unknown liquid" before one of them was assaulted in a drive-by attack, police said.

    Thames Valley Police said the 34-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman were walking home when they were approached by a black Audi A3 in Howard Street, Oxford.

    Officers said five people, aged between 18 and 25, got out the car and assaulted the man.

    Police said the suspects are described as black and Asian. The force added the liquid was not a dangerous substance and did not cause any damage.

    PC Matthew Watson said: “This was a frightening incident for the victims, who were returning home from a music festival."

    A police force has said it was "relatively uncommon" for officers to encounter suspects who concealed drugs on them in custody after a man died when he swallowed heroin.

    An inquest found a "failure" by Thames Valley Police officers to carry out "constant observations" on Leroy Junior Medford was the "main contributory factor" to the 43-year-old's death.

    The force admitted two officers "became distracted", allowing Mr Medford to swallow the drugs he had hidden in between his buttocks.

    The father-of-eight died 15 hours later from a heroin overdose, the inquest found.

    Deputy Chief Constable Jason Hogg told the BBC the force would "seek to make organisational change and learn" from the death.
