Man Has Ear Partly Bitten Off In Southsea
Police are appealing for information after a man had part of his ear bitten off in an assault on Portsmouth seafront.
The victim, 36, had been sitting in a shelter between the life guard station and the Pyramids around 5pm, Friday, April 8.
He challenged a group of teenagers who were acting rowdily and one punched him and bit the top of his left ear before running off.
The group was a mix of boys and girls; the main offenders are described as:
17-year-old man, 5ft 8ins tall, blonde hair, skinny build
17-year-old man, 5ft 8ins tall, ginger hair, chunky build
DC Dave Anderson from Portsmouth CID said:
“The victim has had surgery to sew back the piece of the ear that was bitten and is recovering at home.
“This was an unprovoked attack. We understand one of the group had thrown a stone at the victim and he was challenging their behaviour.
“It was a sunny afternoon and the seafront was busy at the time so I’d like to hear from anyone who was there at the time. Anything you saw will be able to help us with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Anderson at Fratton police station on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
