John Freeman
Police are appealing for information after a man was seriously assaulted in Morecambe on Westminster Road at the weekend.

At around 5.30pm on Sunday evening (23rd February) the 27 year old victim was walking home from a relative’s house when a group of young teenagers began shouting insults at him. The victim responded verbally at which point the group ran and cycled off.

One of the group then went into a nearby house and came out with a chair which he then hit the victim with several times, causing the chair to break.

The victim was treated in hospital for cuts and bruises.

DC Stephen Craig said: “This is a very nasty assault and it is important that we are very keen to trace all of those involved – if anyone saw what happened or has any other information that they think could assist then I would urge them to contact us on 101.”

Information can be passed to police on 101 quoting log number LC-20140223-1046.
