Police appeal following assault in Skelmersdale

November 7, 2014, 6:36 pm

Police are appealing for information after an 18 year old man was assaulted in Skelmersdale.

The incident happened at around 10pm on Thursday 30 October when the victim was walking his girlfriend home. As they were walking along Wigan Road towards Hope Island, they passed a group of approximately 30 youths who were all dressed in dark clothing.

It is believed that one of the males from the group punched the victim in the face. The victim sustained a fractured eye socket as a result of the attack.

PC Steve Quilliam of Skelmersdale Police said: “This nasty assault has left the victim with a serious facial injury which will require surgery. I have no doubt that a number of people in the group will know who is responsible for this cowardly attack and I would urge them to do the right thing and come forward.”
