Alert message sent 02/04/2019 09:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We have released an EFit of a man as part of our ongoing investigation into a serious assault in Swindon late last year.

An aggravated burglary occurred at a residential address in Manchester Road shortly before 7pm on 29/12/18.

During the incident a 34-year-old man suffered serious head injuries and was initially taken to hospital in a critical condition.

However, he is now making a good recovery and is well enough to assist us with producing an EFit of the suspect.

Det Con Craig Rathbone, from Swindon CID, said: "We appealed for information immediately after the assault, but our enquiries have been ongoing and we are now in a position to release this EFit.

"I know the incident happened a few months ago, but we hope this image will help to jog people's memories.

"Were you in the area around the time of the assault? Did you see anything suspicious, perhaps someone who matches this man's description?

"Please call us with any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem - it could be vital to our investigation."

The suspect is described as black, approximately 6ft 6ins tall and was wearing a ¾ length coat and black tracksuit in waterproof material with the hood up.

Anyone who witnessed this incident is asked to call Swindon CID on 101, quoting crime reference 54180122772. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
