Serious assault - witness appeal

Alert message sent 24/11/2018 20:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We're appealing for witnesses to a serious assault on a man which left him hospitalised. 

Just before midnight yesterday (Friday 23 November), a group of males assaulted a man, who's in his 30s, in the car park of The Moonrakers Pub, Cricklade Road, Swindon. 

Due to his serious facial injuries he was taken to hospital where he has undergone surgery. 

Det Con Mark Harris said:  "This was a vicious attack and we would like to hear from anyone who may have heard or seen the assault or a group of men acting suspiciously in this area before or after midnight.  
"This is a busy part of town with a busy main road nearby, so someone may have witnessed something.  If that was you please come forward."

If you can help with our enquiries in anyway please contact Swindon CID on 101 quoting crime reference number 54180111448.  Alternatively, you can call anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
