A man’s been attacked outside a bank in broad daylight.
It happened in St Peter’s Street, outside the Metro Bank, at 3.30pm on Sunday, October 21.
The victim, a man in his 40s, was punched twice in the face by another man who lunged at him and left him with bruising and swelling to his face. It is believed the attacker and the victim are known to one another.
PC Lee Hammond, who is investigating, said: “This assault happened in the city centre at a time when there were a large number of people in the area, some of whom witnessed the incident.
“At the time, the victim did not stop to speak to anyone as he just wanted to get away from the area, however we are now keen to trace any people who saw what happened.
