York police are appealing for the public’s help to identify three men following an assault in the city.

It occurred at around 4am on Friday 31 May 2013, on Rougier Street, when a 19-year-old local man was assaulted.

The incident followed an argument inside a takeaway food shop, which then continued outside.

As a result of the assault the victim received a cut above his right eye, which needed treatment at hospital and bruising to his face.

All three of the suspects are described as white men in their late teens.

The first is around 5ft 8in tall with a big build and short fair hair. At the time he was wearing a blue polo shirt and denim jeans. The second man is around 5ft 9in tall with a slim build. He was wearing a purple top and dark trousers. The only description of the third man is that he has an athletic build and short ginger hair. He was wearing a dark T shirt.

PC Andrew Pearson, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This was a nasty assault which left the victim needing hospital treatment.

“If you witnessed the incident or can identify the men responsible, I urge you to come forward straight away and contact the police.”

Anyone who can assist to identify these men is asked to contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Andrew Pearson. Alternatively information can be emailed to PC Pearson by clicking here.
