BTP ask for help identifying of suspect in Sheffield glass attack

 

DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN? DETECTIVES RELEASE CCTV AFTER PUB GLASS ATTACK LEAVES MAN WITH FACIAL INJURIES – SHEFFIELD
 
 

British Transport Police (BTP) officers are re-appealing for information after a man had a glass smashed in his face during a ‘vicious’ attack in a station pub.

Officers would like to speak with the man pictured in connection with an incident that took place around 9.40pm on Thursday, 8 April, in the Sheffield Tap public house.


 

DC Lee Parsons, investigating officer, said: “The victim was having a drink with his friend, when another man opened the door and hit his chair. 

“After a brief exchange of words, the man became aggressive. The victim tried to defend himself, but the man grabbed him and punched him, before pushing a glass into his face.”

“Thankfully, his glasses helped to minimise the impact of the blow,” added DC Parsons. “If he hadn’t been wearing them, he could well have lost an eye.”

The attack left the victim, a 48-year-old man from Sheffield, requiring hospital treatment for an injured eye and nose, along with facial lacerations.

The man was seen with a group of about seven or eight other men, who were not involved in the incident.

DC Parsons said that officers have made local enquiries as part of their investigation and are releasing these images to appeal to anyone who may know this man or his whereabouts.

He added: “This was a vicious and entirely unprovoked attack on a man in front of a number of pub patrons and we ask that anyone with any information about what happened comes forward.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference 666 of 08/04/10, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
