A Level celebrations turned sour for teenager assaulted in Lancaster

Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault in the early hours of Friday 19th August 2011 between 2.00 and 4.30am on Cheapside, outside the McDonald’s restaurant, Lancaster.

The victim, a 19-year-old local man who was out celebrating his A level results, was approached by four men who punched him a few times before making good of their escape.

He suffered from a fractured to his nose, cuts, bruises and grazes but did not require hospital treatment.

PC Paula Heaton from Lancaster Police said, “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who witnessed something to come forward and contact the police.

“Luckily the victim did not suffer serious injuries but he has understandably been left shaken following his ordeal.”
