Police are today reappealing for witnesses to what they describe as an “unprovoked attack” in a Hitchin pub which left a teenager with facial injuries.
The appeal relates to an alleged assault at the Rose and Crown in Market Place during the early hours of Friday, April 13.
Officers say a dispute broke out in the pub just after midnight between a group of approximately four men.
A man in his late teens is said to have attempted to intervene to break up the argument, but was hit in the face by one of the other men. The teenager sustained injuries to his face.
The four other men have been described by police as white and with Irish accents. They left the venue shortly after the incident occurred and are believed to have got into a taxi outside Starbucks.
