Morecambe police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted after a night out at the weekend.

The offence occurred at around 3.00am on Saturday morning (9th April 2011) as the 19 year old man was walking along Back Morecambe Street after a night out.

Unfortunately, the details around what happened are currently quite unclear but it is thought the offender was wearing a grey-hooded top.

The victim suffered a cut lip and had a lump and bruising on the side of his head as a result of the assault and police are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward.

PC Sue Smith said, “We are still trying to piece together what happened and so I would urge anyone who may have been in the area at the time to come forward and contact police if they saw anything at all suspicious.”

• Anyone with any information is asked to contact Blackpool Police on 01524 63333 or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
