CCTV released after man assaulted in Lancaster
Lancaster detectives have released CCTV images of two men that they want to speak to in connection with an assault in the city centre last month.
At shortly after midnight on Saturday 24th May 2014, the victim, a 30-year-old man from Morecambe, was sat on a bench sharing food with another man when they were approached by two men.
The pair began to verbally abuse the man sat with the victim and when he asked them to stop, he was pushed off the bench and kicked to the face, causing him to lose consciousness.
The victim was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary by police where he regained consciousness and was treated for a fractured nose and eye socket.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information about this incident or those or may recognise these individuals to get in contact with us.”
