A VIOLENT attack with a broken glass bottle left a 29-year-old Chester man bleeding heavily and needing hospital treatment on Saturday, November 1.
The 29-year-old was walking into the city centre with his 26-year-old girlfriend on Queen’s Park View, Handbridge, from the direction of the Carlton Tavern at about 10.30pm on Saturday, November 1.
A police spokesperson said: “Two men approached the pair from the opposite direction walking straight towards them. Without making any effort to get out of the way they barged right through the middle of the couple.
“There was a small altercation and the victim walked away with his girlfriend. A few minutes later the couple heard the sound of smashing glass and saw one of the men holding a broken beer bottle walking in the road towards them.
“He struck the victim twice on the neck and made reference to the victim assaulting his brother. The two offendors ran off in the direction of the pub.”
The victim was taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital.
The attacker is described as male, aged between 16 and 18, about 5ft 10in tall, slim build, with short fair hair and spoke with a Chester accent. The second man was also about 16-18, about 5ft 8in tall, of slim build and looked particularly young.
