Assault in Wellington

On Sunday 21 June three people were walking along Courtland Road in Wellington in the early hours. They were approached by a group of youths or young adults who they did not know.

The trio were assaulted. A 30-year-old man and 45-year-old woman suffered a minor head injury but did not require hospital treatment. A 50-year-old man did not suffer a significant injury.

Following the incident Avon & Somerset Police arrested a 17-year-old male on suspicion of causing assault and causing actual bodily harm. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Police believe that one of the other assailants was male, white, about 5ft 8ins and in their late teens, wearing a white baseball cap, grey jogging bottoms, a dark puffer jacket and trainers. A second was said to be male, about 6ft and wearing a dark North Face jacket, white T-shirt, jeans and white trainers.

The Police are now appealing for witnesses to the assault. PC Adam Bayliss is asking “anyone who witnessed what happened – and hasn’t yet spoken to us – to come forward with any information they have. We’d particularly like to hear from anybody who saw a group of 10-15 youths in that area of Wellington between midnight and 2am.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and give the call-handler reference 5220135252.
