A 24-year-old man is recovering in hospital after being struck by a baseball bat after intervening in a squabble in St Albans
The Good Samaritan was attacked after getting involved in a row at the top of London Road at the junction with the High Street and Chequer Street, at 1.15am on Sunday, June 18.
A car pulled up alongside the group, the driver stepped out and struck the victim with the bat, then escaped in his car.
A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harmed, but has now been released.
Det Con Paul Edmondson said: “I am appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time of the offence and witnessed it to please get in touch.
“We know that a number of people were at the location at the time and would have seen the incident happen.”
The victim, who comes from Harpenden, is in a stable condition in hospital.
