Man suffers serious injuries following pub assault

Posted on 27th July 2017

A man suffered serious injuries when he was assaulted at a pub in Chesterfield.

On Saturday, July 22, a 36-year-old man was at the Crown and Cushion, in Low Pavement, with some friends.

He made his way to the smoking area when he was suddenly the victim of what we believe to be an unprovoked attack.

He suffered a fractured leg, broken eye socket and nose. He did not see who attacked him.

The incident happened sometime between 8pm and 9pm.

People in the pub at the time recall several customers had come from Sheffield that evening so we are asking people to share this appeal on social media in case there are witnesses to the assault from outside the Derbyshire area.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call DC Antonia Hill on 101, quoting reference 17000315344.

You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
