Detectives are appealing for information after a 20-year-old man suffered serious injuries in a reported assault.

During the early hours of Thursday 22 February, the man is said to have walked from Milton Street in the city centre to Manchester Road, Broomhill following a night out with friends.

At some point during this journey, between 12.45-1.45am, detectives believe he was assaulted, leaving him with serious facial injuries, including a fractured eye socket and a fractured cheekbone.

Detective Constable Lee Freeman, investigating the incident, said: “While officers are working hard to piece together the victim’s specific movements that night, through analysing CCTV footage and carrying out enquiries in the area, the exact circumstances surrounding the assault are still unknown.

“While I appreciate this incident happened some time ago, the man was wearing quite distinctive clothing – a school uniform made up of short black trousers, a white shirt and a tie.

“I’d like to ask anyone who saw him that night as he made his way home, or who saw what happened, to please contact the police. Any information you have could prove helpful to our ongoing enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 14/35659/18.
