Police launch appeal after assault near Bull Hotel, Morecambe

Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault in Morecambe last month.

The incident took place on Sunday 21st April at around 10.30pm outside the Bull Hotel on Lines Street.

A disturbance took place outside the pub and the victim, a 31-year-old man from the local area, received a punch to the face causing a fractured jaw that required hospital treatment.

Officers have released a cctv image of a man that they would like to speak to in connection with this incident.

Detective Constable Trevor Walker from Lancaster and Morecambe CID said, “I would appeal to anyone who recognises this man to come forward and contact the police. We need to speak to this person in order to establish exactly what has happened.

“The victim required hospital treatment following the incident and is now recovering at home. If anyone can provide us with information then I would ask them to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancaster CID on 101.

Typical Morecambe, although not surprising the types of characters you see about town at night and minimal police presence. I have fallen victim of violence as well and the offenders nearly always get off with a lightweight penalty. Pathetic.
