Police are appealing for information after a man suffered serious facial injuries during an assault.

Officers were called shortly after 9.30am on Sunday morning (21 November) when the badly injured victim, a man in his twenties, was spotted walking along Newcastle Avenue, Worksop.

He was taken to hospital and was later found to have sustained multiple facial fractures. His condition is not life-threatening.

Detective Sergeant Matt Scott, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We believe the victim in this case was subjected to a prolonged beating. As a result, he has sustained very serious facial injuries that will require surgery to fix.

“Detectives are currently working hard to understand exactly what happened in the moments for before this man was found by members of the public.

“We believe the assault happened shortly before 9.30am somewhere in the town centre area and would like to speak with anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious – particularly an argument involving two or more men.

“Any information you may have – not matter how insignificant it may seem to you – could prove to be a vital clue in our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 229 of 21 November 2021. Reports can also be made to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
