Blackpool police continue to investigate serious town centre assault

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses after an assault in Blackpool in which a teenager suffered a fractured jaw.

They would like to speak to the man in the Santa hat (pictured) after a teenager was assaulted in Blackpool town centre and suffered a fractured jaw.

The assault happened on Talbot Road, at around 11:20pm on December 16.

Officers have made numerous enquiries to identify the man and are asking again for your help.

A spokesperson said: ‘’This is a renewed appeal from December.

‘’A man did originally come forward when we first put our appeal out after the incident, however it was found to be a case of mistaken identity and we were satisfied that he wasn’t the person we’d like to speak to.

‘’If you do have any information that could help us, please do call 101.’’

If you recognise him, please contact or call 101 quoting log 1506 of December 16 2023.
