23 Nov 2017

We are appealing for information following a serious assault in Bridlington on 16 October 2017.

A man was walking along St. John's Avenue near the junction of Midway Avenue around 9.00pm when he was approached by approximately 10 youths.

One of the youths asked the man for a cigarette. The man said he didn't have one, and while he was walking away one of the youths allegedly assaulted him with a bladed weapon.

He sustained minor injuries to his left arm.

It's thought the group of youths had been in a nearby takeaway before the incident. They were all wearing dark clothing and hooded tops.

If you have any information or saw the group that evening please call 101 quoting log 631 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
