Witnesses sought after 'violent assault' in Northallerton

Detectives in Northallerton are appealing for two witnesses to come forward following a robbery.

A 43-year-old man from Northallerton, had walked up Lascelles Lane. As he approached the junction for Central Drive he was approached from behind by at least two people who knocked him to ground before 'violently assaulting him and stealing his money'.

It occurred between midnight and 1am on November 11.

The man suffered a fractured skull, a broken wrist and a chest injury.

Just prior to the robbery taking place, the victim passed a couple walking a dog on Lascelles Lane. It is these people officers need to trace as witnesses.

“This was a vicious and apparently unprovoked assault which left the victim needing hospital treatment.

“I am urging the couple walking the dog on Lascelles Lane area around the time of the robbery, to come forward straight away as I believe they may have vital information which could help my enquiries.”

“I also keen to speak to anyone who can identify those responsible for this nasty robbery and ask them to contact me as soon as possible.”
