Police Appeal For Information Following York Assault


1:51pm 3rd June 2013

York police are appealing for the public’s help to identify three men following an assault in the city.

It happened at around 4am on Friday 31 May 2013, on Rougier Street, when a 19-year-old local man was assaulted, say North Yorkshire Police.

Officers say that the incident followed an argument inside a takeaway food shop, which then continued outside.

As a result of the assault the victim received a cut above his right eye, which needed treatment at hospital and bruising to his face, say police.

All three of the suspects are described by police as white men in their late teens.

The first is around 5ft 8in tall with a big build and short fair hair. At the time he was wearing a blue polo shirt and denim jeans. The second man is around 5ft 9in tall with a slim build, say officers. He was wearing a purple top and dark trousers. The only description of the third man is that he has an athletic build and short ginger hair. He was wearing a dark tee shirt, add North Yorkshire Police.

PC Andrew Pearson, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This was a nasty assault which left the victim needing hospital treatment.

“If you witnessed the incident or can identify the men responsible, I urge you to come forward straight away and contact the police.”

Anyone who can assist to identify these men is asked to contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Andrew Pearson. Alternatively information can be emailed to andrew.pearson@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 12130087313.
