Police are appealing for witnesses today after a CCTV image of a person who the police want to speak to has been released.

Police want to speak to the man after a 73-year-old was the victim of an unprovoked assault in the city centre.

The incident occurred at 4pm on Monday 6th January, 73 year old man was walking along Friargate in Preston and as he walked past a man stood outside The Money Shop, he was punched in the face which caused him to fall over. The man responsible then ran away towards the market.

The elderly gentleman was fortunately only left with minor injuries but he was clearly left very upset and shaken.

PC Mark Robinson who is investigating said, “The area would have been busy at the time and so I would appeal to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed what happened to get in touch with us if they have any information that they think could help. Similarly, if anyone recognises the man in the images then I would ask them to call us.”

People with information are asked to contact police on 101 quoting log number LC-20140106-07.
