Oswestry incident - appeal for key witness

We are investigating an altercation in Oswestry and are appealing for a key witness to come forward.

The incident happened outside the 'Boozed Up' off-license on Salop Road in Oswestry at around 10.30pm on Friday, 14 September.
 
A man was approached by another man outside the shop who was verbally abusive and aggressive towards him.
 
A 31-year-old man was arrested in connection with this incident and recalled to prison due to breach of bail conditions.
 
Enquiries have been carried out and it is believed that a 25 to 30-year-old man came to help the victim outside the off-license having seen the altercation. We are keen to speak to him as he could be a key witness to our enquiries and have important information that could assist us.
 
The man we would like to speak to is described as white, approximately 5'11" tall, of muscular build, with fair hair, and is believed to have been wearing light coloured clothing.
 
Detective Constable Helen Bailey from West Mercia Police said: "We believe the man we are looking for may have witnessed the altercation between the two men and have important information that could assist us with our investigation.
 
"We are therefore keen to speak to him and would urge him to get in contact."
 
Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 54s 150918. Alternatively you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
