Charity offers up to £5,000 for information on attempted murder

The charity Crimestoppers is today offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction for the person responsible for seriously injuring a dog walker in Ebbw Vale.

Crimestoppers are appealing for information after a 47-year-old male suffered shotgun injuries in a rural area between Tredegar and Ebbw Vale at around 6pm on Sunday, 18th November 2018.

The victim had been walking in the area with his dog, when he suffered an injury to his leg caused by shotgun pellets. His injuries are believed to be life-changing and the incident is being treated as attempted murder.

The independent charity Crimestoppers are now offering a reward of up to £5000 for information provided to them on this incident that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Ella Rabaiotti, Wales National Manager for Crimestoppers, said:

“This is a serious incident and the victim has sadly suffered life-changing injuries. We understand that although an arrest has been made, the investigations are ongoing and therefore we’re urging people to come forward with information.”

“Our charity takes information 100% anonymously. Always. Call us free on 0800 555 111 or report via our website. No-one will know you contacted us, and it could be your information that makes the difference.”

If you have any information on the incident then please contact Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through the non-traceable Anonymous Online Form at

*Note: Information passed directly to police will not qualify. The reward will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or via the non-traceable anonymous online form at:
