Man needs surgery after attack outside pub
A 29-YEAR-OLD man suffered a serious head injury which required surgery in an assault outside a Leighton pub.
The incident happened at around 2.15am on Sunday, April 8 outside The Top Bell in High Street, Leighton Buzzard when the victim and two friends were confronted by three offenders who then attacked the group. The victim was left with serious facial and head injuries which resulted in two metal plates being inserted into his head along with 15 stitches.
Beds Police have arrested three people in connection with the incident who have been released on police bail while enquiries continue.
Investigating officer Det Con Colin Knight would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the assault or the confrontation that led up to it.
Det Con Knight said: “This was a vicious attack which has resulted in a man suffering a very serious head injury which required surgery.
“We have already heard from a number of witnesses but I would urge anyone who may have seen the attack take place to get in touch so that we can stop something like this happening again.
“I’d like to hear from anyone who was in the High Street at the time of the assault or anyone else who may have information – however small or insignificant they think it is – that could help us. Don’t dismiss your information as unimportant – even tiny details which don’t seem relevant now might become useful later on in the investigation.”
