Witness appeal following assault on Arundel Street, Portsmouth
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following an assault in Portsmouth in the early hours of Monday (1 November).
It was reported to us at 5.50am that the victim, a 20-year-old man, had been assaulted sometime between 4am and 5am by a group of four or five men unknown to him on Arundel Street, next to St John’s Catholic Primary School.
The man suffered bruising to his face and minor injuries to his head and ear. He was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
We have the below description of one of the offenders:
Approximately 5foot 8inches tall
Of skinny build
Messy, curly brown hair
Wearing a tracksuit
Spoke with a local accent
We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen or heard the altercation taking place or saw the group or the victim before or in the aftermath of the assault. Perhaps you recognise the above description?
We believe a couple of members of the public assisted the victim after the assault. If this was you please get in touch. Perhaps you were driving through the area at the time and have dash cam footage that may have captured something?
