Humberside Police is appealing for independent witnesses after an alleged assault has left a 20-year-old man with serious injuries following two assaults on Stanley Street, Grimsby on Friday 28 November 2014.
At around 0900hrs on Friday 28 November 2014, a 20-year-old man was on foot at the corner of Stanley Street and Duke Street when a silver coloured Vauxhall Omega pulled up and then driver got out. The driver then approached victim and started engaging him in conversation, before allegedly punching the victim multiple time causing him to fall to the floor. Once on the floor the offender allegedly continued to assault the man, before stopping and leaving the area.
The victim then walked off, however six hours later, he was back on Stanley Street where he was approached again by possibly the same man assaulted a second time. The offender then left the area.
