Appeal after alleged Cycle Path assault

Police are appealing for information after reports of an assault in Morecambe.

At around 3.30 am this morning (Tuesday 2nd April) officers received a report that a man had been assaulted and left unconscious on a cycle track in the town, but when emergency services attended the alleged scene they found no one there.

Although it is unclear exactly what has happened, there is a concern that a man may well have been assaulted and be in need of medical assistance and so officers are appealing to anyone who may have any information to come forward.

The assault is believed to have occurred on the cycle track near to the Honda garage at the rear of Grosvenor Park estate on the Lancaster side of the underpass.

A 21 year old man from Lancaster has been arrested in connection with the assault on suspicion of wounding and is currently in custody being questioned.

Detective Sergeant Mark Stephens said, “Anyone who either witnessed the incident or has any information is requested to contact the police on 101 quoting reference LC-20130402-0122.”

• 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.
