Detectives are appealing for information and footage following an assault in Chester.
At around 3.30am on New Year’s Day (1 January) an 18-year-old man was walking along Foregate Street near to the Bars Roundabout when he was approached by an unknown man.
The man then punched and kicked the victim causing him to fall into the road before leaving the area on foot.
The victim was assisted by members of the public and was taken to hospital suffering from serious facial injuries.
The man is described as white, aged in his 40 then left the area on foot.
Officers are now appealing to anyone who may have information to get in touch.
Detective Constable Ben Jones said: “The city centre would have been extremely busy at this time of night with streets full of vehicles and passers-by having celebrated the new year.
“We would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have dashcam footage, and have not yet spoken to police, to please get in touch.
“The same goes to anyone who may have information as to who is responsible.”
Anyone with information can contact Cheshire Police via the Cheshire Police website quoting IML 1446905 or by calling 101.
Information can also be passed on to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or visiting the Crimestoppers website.
