Police at Strand Road have appealed for information about an assault on a man in the Pennyburn area of the city.

Constable McAllister, the investigating officer, said that at about 2.30pm on Thursday, July 22, a man was in a car parked near the Credit Union office.

“The driver’s side door was flung open by a man who began punching the car’s occupant,” he said.

“He was then pulled from the car and the assailant began kicking and jumping on him.

“At this stage it is believed the victim has a broken cheekbone. He has severe swelling on the right side of his face and a graze to the back of his head.”

Information can be given on the police non-emergency number, 101, or by calling the Crimestoppers Charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
