Did you witness a serious assault in Southport Town Centre in December 2015?

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives, in Southport, are appealing for witnesses to a serious assault, which happened in the Town, to come forward. Several people rushed to the aid of the victim after he was punched to the floor and kicked repeatedly by his attacker. The 'good Samaritans' were sat on a bench on Lord Street, close to the junction with Seabank Road and the old Grand Casino, when the assault occurred at around 1am, 16 December 2016. The 57 year old victim suffered a broken jaw, cuts to his face and several of his teeth were knocked out during the assault.

Following the attack the offender fled in a silver coloured car with several other people inside. The people sat on the bench then went to the victim's aid. They called an Ambulance and stayed with him until Paramedics arrived. Officers from the force have made enquiries in the area and arrested a 41 year old local man at his home address on suspicion of assault and affray. He was interviewed by detectives the following day and released on Police Bail pending further enquiries.

Officers are keen for the 2 people who were sat on the bench and went to the victim's aid to come forward as they may have information that could help Police progress the investigation. If you can help, please call Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3059 or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
