Witness appeal following assault in Worcester

West Mercia Police is appealing for witnesses or information following an assault in Worcester in the early hours of Sunday morning (1 April).

At approximately 1am, a 35-year-old man and a 29-year-old man were walking from Worcester city centre towards Boughton Road. As they reached the junction of Bromyard Road and Church Terrace, they were approached by a group of teenage males.

One of the group then assaulted both men with what is believed to be a glass bottle, causing cuts to their heads which required hospital treatment. Both victims have since been discharged.

The group then ran off in the direction of Blakefield Gardens and St Johns Church, Bromyard Road.

No arrests have been made.

The offender is described as a mixed race male, about 17 years old, of a thin build, around 5ft 4ins tall. He had an afro hair style and was believed to be wearing dark clothes and a hooded top. It is believed he was with another three males.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Joanne Mayo-Evans from Worcester Police Station, said: "We are appealing to any witnesses to this assault, which left two men requiring hospital treatment for their injuries.

"If you have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident reference 35s of 1 April 2018."

Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via their website.
