Appeal: Man seriously assaulted in Weston-super-Mare

We’re appealing for information after a man in his 60s was the victim of a GBH assault and attempted robbery in Weston-super-Mare.

On Monday 10 January at around 3pm, the victim was waiting in a bus shelter at Locking Road car park when he was approached by two unknown males who demanded money from him.

When the victim refused, he was subjected to a serious assault which left him with a spinal injury.

The offenders are described as:

1. White, about 6ft tall and of slim build, aged in his mid-20’s, with black curly hair which was longer on top and shorter on the sides. He was clean shaven, and was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms with a grey tracksuit top. He had a tattoo of a skull on his neck in black ink with red markings.

2. White, about 5ft 6in tall and of a larger build, aged in his mid-20’s with dark short hair. He had a thick bushy goatee beard, and was wearing light blue jeans with a black unzipped jacket and a white t-shirt on underneath that had some form of logo on.

The offenders ran off after two other men intervened to stop the assault and provided assistance to the victim. Police are keen to speak to them about what they saw and would encourage them to come forward.

They’d also like to hear from anyone else who may have witnessed the incident or has any information that could assist their inquiry.
