John Freeman

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man suffered a broken nose when he was assaulted in Lancaster.

Between 12.15am and 1.30am on Sunday 14th April, a 29 year old man was punched in an unprovoked attack on Church Street at the junction of the Calkeld Lane alleyway, which runs alongside Bella Italia.

Unfortunately, the man wasn’t able to get a description of the offender, but it is believed there may have been someone nearby who witnessed this incident.
