Man sustains fractured jaw after assault

Man sustains fractured jaw after assault
Man wanted in connection with assault.

A man suffered a deep cut to his eye and a fractured jaw after he was assaulted in Wigan.

It happened outside Madisons bar on King Street at about 1.30am on 14 November 2009.

Police have now released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the attack.

The victim, 50, had been on a night out when he was confronted by the offender, who punched him in the face after an argument. The force caused the victim to fall to the floor, leaving him with a swollen right eye and a 5cm cut that broke all the layers of his skin. He also sustained a fractured jaw.

The offender then ran before police attended.

He is described as white, of a medium to heavy build and about 25-years-old. He had short dark hair and was wearing a black and pink T-shirt and dark jeans.

Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the attack, or who knows the man pictured in the CCTV images, to come forward.

Police Constable Sue Bridges, of Wigan CID, said: "This attack might be a few months old, but that does not detract from how serious it was and we will continue to investigate until we find the man responsible.

"There would have been a lot of people outside the bar at that time who may have witnessed what happened and we need to speak to them.

"I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV to come forward and not stay silent. This is the sort of unacceptable town centre violence that could have happened to anyone of us, and if you do know who this man is then please speak up as next time it could be your brother or son or friend who is attacked."

Anyone with information is asked to call Wigan CID on 0161 856 7295 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
