Police at Strand Road in Londonderry are appealing for information about an assault on a man in the Waterside at the weekend.

Inspector Colin Hamilton said that at about 3pm on Saturday, August 1, a man was attacked by seven or eight other males in an alleyway off Bonds Hill.

“There are no descriptions of the offenders, only that they followed the male into the alleyway and attacked him from behind,” he said.

“The victim was knocked to the ground, and the males stood over him throwing punches to his head and face. A black mobile phone and a sum of money were taken. The victim also suffered a fractured cheekbone. There is no apparent motive for the incident and we would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened.”
