Excellent Response To Crimewatch Appeal

Last night's appeal on Crimewatch for the information about last month's attack on the owner of the Falcon Hotel produced excellent results.

DCI Dave Mirfield, the senior investigating officer into the attempted murder in Coventry of Dr Khurshid Naqvi, said the public appeal for information on the BBC's Crimewatch UK had produced a great response.

More than 40 calls from the public were received both by the Crimewatch UK studio and the inquiry incident room at Chace Avenue police station in Coventry.

"We are very pleased with this excellent response and some very useful information has been forthcoming which we are now actively following up," DCI Mirfield said.

Luke AndersonThe main thrust of the appeal was for information to help police trace and interview Luke Anderson in connection with this case. He is believed to be in the Coventry area and is well known on the local club scene.

He has a distinguishing tattoo on his left arm displaying the flag of St George with the word 'Michelle'.

The incident took place at 2.30am on Friday 9 March when Dr Naqvi, the proprietor of the Falcon Hotel in Coventry, suffered serious injuries after a vicious assault. He was in a coma for four weeks after the attack and has only partially regained consciousness.

Anyone who knows of Luke Anderson's whereabouts, or anyone who may have witnessed or have information about the incident itself, is asked to contact officers at the incident room on 024 7653 9800.
