Appeal after jogger is assaulted in Lancaster

Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was attacked in an unprovoked assault as he jogged to a friend’s house in Lancaster last month.

The 19 year old victim was jogging along Wingate Saul Road at 9.30pm on Saturday 31st March when he has approached by three teenage boys from the opposite direction.

Without warning, one of the boys tripped him up causing him to fall to the floor where he was kicked and punched to his head and body.

DC Ian Wright from Lancaster CID said: “Fortunately the victim managed to escape with relatively minor injuries but this was a nasty and unprovoked attack on a man simply out jogging.

"I’d appeal to members of the public with any information about this incident or the people responsible to contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

• People with information can also contact the independent charity 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.
