DETECTIVES investigating an assault in Stevenage are making a renewed appeal after new information came to light.

The incident took place in Chicago Rock Caf� on the leisure park at just after 12.35am on Sunday, October 18.

It is believed a man, who was wearing a blue and white chequered cowboy-style shirt, was pushed to the floor and punched several times in the face by a white man at the edge of the dance floor.

Following a detailed investigation, a woman, who it is believed witnessed the incident, made herself known to a member of staff and pointed out the offender. Her details were not taken.

Detective constable Matt Creese, investigating, said: "We are extremely keen to identify this woman and speak to her as she may have significant information to help the investigation.

"This man suffered quite serious injuries to his face, which required hospital treatment and we are keen to establish who was responsible.
