Police appeal after man's jaw broken in assault

Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault in Fareham on Sunday, September 9.

The incident happened between 3am and 3.45am near to the Esso garage on Gosport Road.

A 19-year-old man was walking along Gosport Road with two others when they were approached by a group of at least three men.

The victim was then assaulted resulting in a broken jaw.

This is not a common occurrence in the area. The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning and I’d like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything.

“It is believed that a party was taking place nearby. If you were leaving the party in the early hours of Sunday morning and have any information then you should contact the police.

– Detective Constable Sarah Ridler, Hampshire Police
