Taunton assault – can you help?

A 26-year-old man from Taunton was left with head injuries after an assault last week. He was walking along Priory Bridge Road, Taunton, on Sunday 9 August at around 7pm. An unknown assailant punched him to the floor. The assault continued while he was on the ground with more kicks and punches being aimed at him. Police believe the offender was not known to the victim.

The victim was taken to hospital following the incident, but has since been discharged.

The Police are now looking for witnesses to the assault. They believe the assailant was a white man, of a large build and around 6ft in height, with short ginger hair. He was wearing a high visibility jacket over a white T-shirt, shorts and trainers. The Police believe he had been in the Crown and Sceptre Pub in Taunton shortly before the incident took place.

Anyone with information that could help police identify the man is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference 5220179119.
