Appeal following assault on man outside restaurant in Chorley

October 28, 2014, 3:32 pm

Police are appealing for information after a man was left with four fractures to his arm following an assault.

The incident happened sometime between 1.05am and 1.20am on Sunday 26 October outside Dantes at the Halfway House Hotel on Preston Road, Clayton-le-Woods, Chorley.

It is believed that the victim and his partner were involved in an altercation with a group of four men, shortly after the bar and restaurant had closed.

It is thought that the victim was pushed to the ground by one of the men who then stamped on his arm, resulting in four fractures to his arm and wrist which will require extensive hospital treatment to repair.

The man is described as white, around 5ft 10 to 6ft tall, of a medium build with short dark hair and a chiselled jaw. He was wearing a black t-shirt and dark denim jeans and was seen leaving the scene in a white taxi.

PC Emma Collins of Chorley Police said: “This was a nasty attack leaving the victim with multiple fractures. We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone who may have information that could help us with our enquiries, to get in touch with us on 101 quoting SC1400549.”
