Assault Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in Witney on Saturday evening (8th March).

At around 8.45pm, the 41-year-old was attacked outside the Robin Hood pub in Hailey Road. He received heavy bruising and a wound to the head that required eight stitches. He was treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

PC Graham Lea said: "Unfortunately, this man has no recollection of what happened to him, but doctors say his injuries are consistent with being kicked or struck with a blunt instrument.

"There was a large number of people inside the pub on a typically busy Saturday night and I am hoping someone may have seen this attack take place. If you did, please come forward."

PC Lea 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.
