A YOUNG man needed a metal plate inserting into his jaw following a vicious street attack.
The 22-year-old victim sustained a fractured jaw after being assaulted by two unknown men in Great Sutton.
He was walking his dog near the park in Seacombe Drive on Saturday, July 5 about 4pm when he was attacked from behind.
He never managed to see his assailants properly, but says there were two of them. One wore a blue and grey hoodie, the other was in a grey hoodie.
“The victim was texting on his mobile phone at the time, and these two lads came out of nowhere and hit him in the face,” said Detective Constable Chris Dean.
He added: “It is not known what the motive for this attack was. There had been no demands for his phone and it wasn’t taken.
“As a result of the attack, the victim sustained a fractured jaw and was taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital.
“He required a metal plate being put in his jaw to treat his injury.
“He’s out of hospital now and able to speak again.”
DC Dean urged anyone who witnessed the attack or knows anything more about it to call him at Ellesmere Port & Neston CID on 01244 613140 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
