Assault – Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted outside a bar in Witney in the early hours of Christmas Day.

Between 12.40am and 1am, a 28-year-old man was punched to the side of the face outside Izi in Market Square Witney. He was knocked unconscious and received further head injuries as he hit the floor. He was treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital's A&E department.

PC Andy Ball from Witney police station said: “Unfortunately, because this man was knocked out, he has little memory of what happened on Christmas Eve outside Izi.

“If you were at the bar or passing outside and saw this assault take please, I would be very keen to speak to you.”

PC Ball can be contacted via the Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505.

If you don't want to talk to police and don’t want to leave your name, call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
