Last night at around 1 am we were in bed when we suddenly heard three loud bangs that sounded like gun shots from the street outside. Alarmed, my husband got out of bed to see what was happening. As he looked out of the window he saw a white car parked on the road and a man coming round the corner and then walking up our road and to the white car. He pulled the driver out of the drivers seat and then he knocked him down onto the ground. The man was unable to get up off the ground and he laid there for a while as if he was unconscious. Eventually however the man managed to get to his feet but was staggering. He attempted to get back to the drivers seat of his car but he fell to the ground again.
My husband shouted at me to ring the emergency services and to get the police and an ambulance. As my husband has a speech impediment and was trying to relay to me what was happening it was very difficult. However I did manage to ring emergency services and ask for police and an ambulance. I was passed to the police who immediately told me to ring an ambulance. I was passed to the ambulance people, but they told me to go to the police. I was bounced between police and ambulance and neither of them would agree to come. Meanwhile the man who had been knocked to the ground managed to get back into his car and drive slowly off.
We have no idea at all what was happening, but it was very frightening as you can imagine. I felt very frightened because there was so much shouting and it sounded as though there was a gang outside but it turned out to be only two men. I was upset that neither the police nor an ambulance would come. After the car drove away all was quiet again.
