CCTV appeal after man assaulted in St Helens

CCTV appeal after man assaulted in St Helens

We have issued a CCTV image of a male who may have information to assist our enquiries after a 71-year-old man was assaulted in St Helens.

At around 8.20pm on Saturday 12 November, we received a report that a man had been punched twice in the face on Westfield Street.

The victim was standing outside a bar when he was approached by an unknown male who punched him twice, causing an injury to his nose.

The suspect has then left the scene on foot.

Since the incident, we have carried out a thorough investigation and analysed CCTV footage to identify anyone who could be responsible.

We are now able to release a CCTV image of a male who we think may have information.

Detective Inspector James Rotheram said: “This was a nasty and completely unprovoked attack on an innocent man. We think the male pictured in the CCTV image may have vital information to help our enquiries and although the quality of the image may not be as clear as we would like, we hope that it could trigger someone’s memory.

“If you recognise this man, or this image reminds you of anything suspicious you saw at around 8.20pm on Saturday 12 November on Westfield Street, please do let us know.”

You can pass on any information via DM @MerPolCC, ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference 22000834973.
