Isle Of Wight Attack
Police Want To Trace Four Men After 46-yr-old Attacked In Ryde
A man was left with cuts to his head following an assault on the Isle of Wight.
A 46-year-old man was walking along Adelaide Place, Ryde, close to the junction with Ratcliffe Avenue, when he was approached by a group of four men at 7.10pm on Thursday April 13.
He was assaulted, leaving him with swelling to his face, damage to his teeth and a cut to his head.
The four men are described as being aged between 18 and 20 years old.
Detective Constable Lee Parker said: "We know that this area is popular with dog walkers and people playing football so we would urge anyone who may have seen this assault to come forward.
"We are particularly keen to speak to a female aged between 18 and 20 years old and a white haired man walking a black/brown staffy type dog who were both scene in the area at the time, as they may have information that can assist our investigation.
"We believe this is an isolated incident and we are doing everything we can to ensure those responsible are arrested."
Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call DC Parker on 101, quoting 44160140614, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
