We’re appealing for information after a man was assaulted in Derby.
A 48-year-old man was walking on the pathway between Seymour’s bar and St Werburgh’s Church, just off Cheapside when a man walked past him in the opposite direction.
The victim felt a sharp blow to back of his head as the man passed and fell to the ground hitting his chin on some slabs.
The victim sustained a broken jaw during the incident which has been described as a life changing injury. He was also treated at hospital for a head injury.
The man who assaulted the victim is described having dark skin and possibly being of south Asian heritage. He was around 5ft 8ins tall and of medium build, with thick black hair.
He was wearing a white, long-sleeved top and dark trousers. The victim believed he was aged in his twenties.
Despite extensive enquiries officers have so far been unable to trace any witnesses, or useful CCTV footage in relation to this incident and so are seeking the public’s help.
The incident happened sometime between 10.30pm and 11.30pm on Sunday 9 October.
Anyone with information about this incident, or private CCTV footage covering the area, which has not already been checked by officers, is asked to contact us quoting reference 22*589524.
You can also anonymously contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111, or by visiting the Crimestoppers website.
