Man attacked in Penny Street during night out

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was assaulted during a night out in Lancaster city centre.
 
The incident happened during the early hours of Monday 4th October 2011 when the 22-year-old victim was walking from Revolution down Penny Street and following a verbal altercation was punched in the head.
 
The offender is described as a white man, 5ft 10inches in height and of a skinny build. He was wearing a distinctive green tweed jacket.
 
“This attack left the victim with a nasty cut above his eye which required gluing at the Infirmary at Lancaster," commented Lancaster City Centre Beat Manager PC Chris Smith.
 
“The offender is described as wearing a distinctive green coloured tweed jacket and was in the company of two other men. An investigation is underway but anyone who can help with any information leading to the identity of man should contact me on 08451 25 35 45."
