Witness appeal after Blackpool attack

Written by on November 26, 2021

We are appealing for witnesses after a man was attacked and seriously injured in Blackpool. 

Police were called around 11.40pm on November 17 to a report of an assault at the junction of Kent Road and Princess Street.

Officers attended and found a man in his 30s with serious facial injuries. He was later taken to hospital for treatment.

Following enquiries detectives believe the victim was attacked by a number of men who made off from the scene before police arrived.

Detectives are appealing for information and urging any witnesses to come forward.

Det Con Dan Knowles, of Blackpool CID, said: “This was a serious assault which left the victim with injuries including a fractured nose, jaw and eye socket.

“The attack took place late at night but I believe someone will have seen what happened.

“I’m also keen to trace anyone who might have dashboard mounted camera footage which has recorded the incident.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or email [email protected] quoting log 1698 of November 17.

Alternatively you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers.org.
