CCTV APPEAL: Police look to identify males after Costcutter assault

 Published on: 2nd February 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police have released images from CCTV footage of two males who they seek to identify, as they believe they could assist in the investigation of a Watford assault.

A previous image of another male has now been deleted, due to him being successfully identified.

The incident occurred at 6:15pm on Thursday, January 13, when a group of people got into an altercation with a 30-year-old male member of staff, the victim, at the Costcutter shop in Owen Square.

A verbal disagreement escalated into a physical assault outside the store, which left the victim with cuts and bruising following multiple punches to the face.

The suspects fled the scene, some on foot and some on bikes, in the direction of Aldenham Road.

The Watford Local Crime Unit’s Detective Constable Debbie West said: “We have carried out extensive enquiries into this incident since it happened, and have attempted to identify those pictured by other means. However, those attempts have been unsuccessful, so we are now asking the public for their help.

“It is believed that these three males were in the area at the time the incident took place and may be able to help with our enquiries. If you recognise any of them, please get in contact.

“Alternatively, if you witnessed the incident taking place or have any information that may assist with our investigation, please report it.”
