Appeal for information following an assault in Bootle

MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault of a man in the Bootle area, on Monday, 5 September 2016. The alleged assault took place at around 6.30pm. We are told by Merseyside Police that the victim was inside The Ice Parlour shop, at the junction of Aintree Road and Worcester Road, in Bootle. As he walked towards the exit, the victim bumped into a man and following a verbal altercation, the man attempted to punch the victim and, following a struggle, bit him, causing the victim to lose part of his right ear. The man then left the location in a Ford Focus Estate. The suspect is described as white, in his 20's, 5ft 9in tall and of a stocky build.  Detective Inspector Mike Dalton of Sefton CID said:- "This was an appalling attack which has left the victim with permanent injuries and understandably distressed. Any acts of violence will not be tolerated and we will make every effort to bring those people responsible to justice. We are keen to speak with a number of witnesses to the incident, including three men and one woman who gave the victim assistance in the immediate aftermath. Anyone who saw a man getting into a dark Ford Focus estate outside the shop at around 6.30pm may also have vital information." Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3835, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
