East Riding of Yorkshire

7 Sep 2021

At around 1.15am on Thursday 26 August 2021 we received a report that a man had been assaulted in the area of The Crescent and Malborough Terrace in Bridlington.

He was taken to hospital for treatment to what initially were believed to be non-life threatening injuries.  Sadly on Friday 3 September he died in hospital from his injuries.

The victim has been named as Andrew Turner, 58-years-old of Bridlington. His family are being supported by specially trained officers and have asked for privacy at this time.  Our thoughts are with Andrew’s family and friends at this difficult time.

A 19-year-old woman was arrested and charged in connection with the assault and is on Court bail.

Officers investigating the incident continue to appeal for anyone who has not already spoken to us to call us on our non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 16/85331/21.
