Avon & Somerset Police are appealing for witnesses after a man sustained a significant head wound following an assault in Ilminster. Unfortunately, once again this appeal is coming somewhat after the fact. The assault took place over a week ago between 1.30am and 2pm on Saturday 14th April.
The victim of the assault was a man in his 40s, who police believe was approached from behind and hit over the head with a weapon, possibly a metal bar. He sustained a large cut which required a number of stitches at hospital.
Did you witness this attack. The police are urging witnesses to come forward to help their enquiries. Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5218079742.
