10:26am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
DETECTIVES investigating an assault in Oxton have released an e-fit of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.
At around 10.30pm on Thursday, 1 August, a 27-year-old man was driving along Balls Road, when two youths put a road sign in the road, blocking his path.
The man wound his car window down and asked the pair to move the sign.
One of the youths approached the man before punching him in the face and running off.
The victim received a slight cut to his face as a result of the assault.
Detective Constable Andy Dunseath from Birkenhead CID said: "This was a completely unprovoked attack on a man who was just trying to go about his daily business.
"I'm sure local residents would agree that the person responsible for this incident needs to be brought to justice and I would urge anyone who has any information about this incident or anyone who recognises the Efit to get in contact."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Birkenhead CID on 0151777 2265 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
