Police want to speak to a man on a CCTV image about an incident where a man sustained a broken jaw and facial injuries.
The incident happened in Andover High Street between 7pm and 7.30pm on May 2, near to Tesco Metro.
A 19-year-old man was assaulted and took several blows to the head which resulted in a broken jaw and facial injuries. He was taken to hospital for treatment.
Detective Constable Penny Herridge said: “A number of members of the public were in the area at the time and we believe some people may have tried to intervene.”
“Were you there? Did you see what was going on? Do you recognise the man in the CCTV image?”
The man is described as white, aged in his mid to late 20s, of a stocky build and about 5ft 9ins tall. He had short shaved hair, tattoos on his arms, back and leg, and was wearing a white and black checked short-sleeved hooded-top, shorts and light-coloured trainers. He also had a ‘stretcher’ earring in his left ear.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Herridge at Andover CID on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
