DETECTIVES have released a photograph of man they would like to speak to after another man was assaulted and robbed in Blackpool.

Around 7.50pm on Tuesday 5 November, the 20 year old was walking along Palmer Avenue with an acquaintance when two men approached them from behind and he was hit on the back of his head.

The man then had his mobile phone and a quantity of cash stolen before being punched in the head again.

Fortunately, several people nearby intervened and prevented the men from attacking the victim further as he lay on the floor defenceless.

DC Stuart Reid said: “This was a nasty assault and it’s important that we find the people responsible. Fortunately the man suffered only minor injuries thanks to the intervention of the passers-by.

“I am keen to trace the man pictured; I believe he could have information which will prove to be crucial to this investigation.

“If you know who this man is please come forward. I would also like to appeal directly to the man himself: if this is you then please contact us.

“If anybody has any information at all about this incident then I’d like to hear from them.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
