The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses af­ter a man was at­tacked in the street.

The 25-year-old vic­tim had been walk­ing along New Road in the di­rec­tion of Oun­dle Road, Peter­bor­ough, at 1.45am on Sun­day when he was ap­proached by two men.

He was re­peat­edly punched but man­aged to break free from his at­tack­ers and fled.

A po­lice spokes­woman said the man was “lucky” to es­cape with only mi­nor in­juries fol­low­ing the at­tack.

She said: “We have put out leaflets to house­hold­ers ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion. We do not want to alarm peo­ple but we do want res­i­dents to know we are work­ing in the area to find the peo­ple re­spon- sible.

“It is im­por­tant peo­ple con­tact po­lice if they have heard or seen any­thing.”

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer De­tec­tive con­sta­ble Louise Spinks said: “ We would like to hear from any­one who saw the as­sault take place or any­one who has in­for­ma­tion about who may be re­spon­si­ble.”

A 22-year-old man from Peter­bor­ough has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with an as­sault and has been bailed to ap­pear at Thorpe Wood Po­lice Sta­tion on June 28

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the at­tack should con­tact DC Spinks on 0345 456 456 4 or al­ter­na­tively Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
