Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses following Friday's assault in Shefford


POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a 19-year-old man was glassed while out on a Friday night in Shefford.

The victim was in the garden of The Cornerstone, a pub on the town’s High Street, at around 11pm, last week, when there was suddenly a lot of noise and he was approached by a woman.

She smashed a glass over the victim’s head causing him to fall to the floor.

He suffered deep cuts to his head and right ear and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The woman is described as white with dark, possibly curly hair.

She was about 5ft 6in tall, of average build and was wearing jeans.

Detective constable Amanda Durrant, investigating, said: “The victim has no idea why this woman hit him with the glass and he has suffered significant injuries from the assault.

“We know there were quite a few people in the area at the time who may have seen the incident or remember the woman and we would urge them to get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information can contact DC Durrant on 01582 473325, the main switchboard on 01234 841212, text to 07786 200011 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
