Police have been distributing fliers in order to find a man they believe to have vital information.

They want to speak to the man pictured above about a serious assault that occurred in Stevenage.

The incident happened at around 2.10 am on Sunday September 15th outside the Bank Lounge Bar on the town’s High Street.

Police originally launched an appeal shortly after the incident took place but following extensive enquiries are hoping a fresh appeal will encourage people to come forward.

Police will now be issuing ‘Can You Help?’ fliers outside of The Bank in the evenings over the festive period in the hope that a member of the public will identify the man, or the man himself contacts police.

The victim, a man in his forties, was outside of The Bank public house when he was approached by another man who came out of The Bank and approached the victim before punching him in the jaw, causing him to momentarily lose consciousness and causing him to fall backwards before hitting his head on the pavement.

PC Jodie Coyle, from Stevenage Police station, who is investigating the incident said: “After exhausting all lines of our investigation we are re-issuing this appeal We are urging people who may know this man, or the man himself, to come forward and speak with us as we believe he has vital information which could assist our investigation. This was a nasty and unprovoked attack on a man who had been enjoying a night out with friends. He was left with painful injuries which have caused permanent scarring.”
