Appeal for Witnesses after 48-Year-Man Suffers Serious Facial Injuries During Assault in Hartlepool
Police are appealing for information after a 48-year-old man was assaulted whilst walking along the promenade area on Marina Drive in Hartlepool.
The incident occurred on Friday 10th June at around 7:30pm when the victim noticed a group of five males, one of whom asked him for a cigarette.
A short conversation took place and the victim told the male that he didn’t smoke. The man then punched the victim in the face several times, causing him to fall to the ground.
The victim was then assaulted by several of the males whilst on the floor and then they all made off from the scene.
The victim was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he was treated for a fractured jaw, broken eye socket and broken cheekbone.
One of the suspects is described as a white male, around 18-19-years-old, around 6 ft 1” tall and of slim build with dark hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt with the Adidas on the front in blue and dark tracksuit bottoms.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Temporary Detective Sergeant Phillip Agar on the 101 non-emergency number. Information can also be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
