CCTV Appeal Over Unprovoked Attack In Leeds Pub

Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to identify in connection with a serious assault in a Leeds pub.

The victim, a 31-year-old man, was in Yate’s Wine Lodge, in Boar Lane, in the early hours of Friday, October 5, when he was punched in the face in an unprovoked attack that left him with a fractured cheekbone.

The suspect was described as white, 6ft tall, stocky build, with short dark hair with a prominent parting on the left side. He was wearing a dark green top, which had a black letter Y on the left sleeve, and dark-coloured trousers.

He was in company with a woman who police also want to identify as a potential witness to the incident.

PC John Beaumont, of Leeds District CID, said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack where there had been no issues or exchanges between the suspect and the victim before the attack. He has been left with a serious facial injury that requires surgery.

“We want to hear from anyone who recognises the man shown in the CCTV images or the woman who was with him.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC990 John Beaumont at Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13180496672 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
