Between 12.45am and 1am on Saturday 27 November a man and a woman were assaulted by a suspect shortly after leaving the Half Moon pub.
The suspect approached the couple by walking behind them, threw something at the man’s head and punched the woman in the face and pushed her to the floor, kicking her while she was down.
