Police appeal following Moorgate assault

Detectives are appealing for information after an assault in Lancaster earlier this month on Moorgate.

The incident happened at around 6.30pm on Thursday 19th September, at the junction of Moorgate and Ullswater Road, outside Cutting Corners hairdressers.

The male offender approached the victim from behind, jumped on him and proceeded to punch him to the ground, where he then continued to kick the man in his body and head  before walking away.

The victim, a local man in his 50’s, was fortunately only left with cuts and bruises.

DC Paul Donnelly said, “This would appear to be an unprovoked attack, so we are appealing for any witnesses to come forward and contact us if they have any information they think could be of use to the investigation.”

• Anyone with information is asked to call Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log number LC-20130919-1149 or 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.
