The attacker, who was with two other men, also stole the victim's wallet and damaged a number of bottles, Cambridgeshire Police said. The milkman, aged in his 50s, was attacked while working his round in Belsay Drive, Stanground, Peterborough at around 3.45am on Tuesday. He noticed a group of three men near to his float. One attempted to steal a crate of milk and when challenged he assaulted the milkman. The three men then stole the milk float, which was recovered around six miles away in Eye.
