Detectives have released CCTV images of two men they want to speak to in connection with an assault in Lancaster city centre.

Shortly after midnight on Saturday, May 24, a 30-year-old man from Morecambe was sat on a bench sharing food with another male when they were approached by two men.

The pair began to verbally abuse the man sat with the victim and when he has asked them to stop, he was pushed off the bench and kicked to the face, causing him to lose consciousness.

He was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary where he regained consciousness and was treated for a fractured nose and eye socket.

DC Dylan Hrynkow said: “This was an appalling attack on a man who had just enjoyed a night out and was trying to prevent an unprovoked situation from escalating.”
