North Wales Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses following a serious assault in April which left a 27 year old local man with significant head injuries.
Investigating Officer Det Constable Pete Jarvis at St Asaph CID said “At about 10.15pm on Monday 2nd April 2012 a 27 year old local man was attacked in his partners’ home in South Avenue, Prestatyn by a number of males.
“These men forced their way into the property and then subjected him to a vicious attack using some form of weapon. He was taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd where, Im glad to say, he made a recovery but he still bears the scars both physically and mentally”.

“Some of those involved had attempted to cover their faces during the attack; however the victim has provided a description of one of his attackers from which an Evo-Fit has been produced and I would appeal to anyone knowing the identity of this man to contact us”
Det Constable Jarvis is also anxious to hear from any person who was in the area immediately before, during or after the attack or anyone who knows anything about this assault, no matter how insignificant they think it may be, to make contact with North Wales Police.
Det Constable Jarvis added “During then course of this investigation we have identified a white van in the area at the relevant time. We believe this van is either a Renault Traffic, Vauxhall Vivaro or Nissan Prima Star or similar which has three distinctive “spot lights” on the front. The van also appears to have alloy wheels and colour coded bumpers. It is imperative that we identify those who have or may have had access to this vehicle in April so that we can progress the investigation”.
“We have produced a number of ‘still’ images of the van during our review of relevant CCTV footage and would urge anyone knowing this vehicle, or a similar one that may have been altered to avoid identification, to please make contact with Police.”
