Appeal for witnesses after man knocked unconscious in Southampton
Main article content
We’re appealing for witnesses to an assault which occurred in Southampton.
At around 9.45pm last night (9 July), a man in his 40s was walking with a friend along Crabwood Road, near the junction with Glencoyne Gardens, when they were approached by two men coming from the direction of Wimpson Lane.
One of the men was shirtless, and the other was described as wearing a black T-shirt.
The shirtless man then punched the man in his 40s, knocking him unconscious and causing him to suffer a laceration to his head.
We are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to please contact police.
We believe there were other people around who would have seen what happened, including a man with tattoos who may have tried to intervene and pursued the suspect from the scene, and a man who came down from the block of flats on Wimpson Lane which overlook Crabwood Road.
