Police appeal following vicious attack
Police in Barnstaple are appealing for information following an attack on a 20-year-old which left him with a broken jaw.
The victim was approached by two men at around 3pm on Sunday 1 March on Bear Street, close to Alexandra Road, and subsequently punched four times in the face and headbutted.
His jaw was broken so badly in the assault, he had to adhere to a liquid diet for almost two days.
One of the offenders is thought to be in his early to mid-20s and was described as wearing black tracksuit bottoms, black shoes and an orange Canada Goose coat. He was walking with a black and brown Staffordshire Bull Terrier type dog.
The other suspect is thought to be in his mid to late teens and was described as wearing a black tracksuit with a hooded top with red drawstrings underneath.
Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, or drivers who were in the area at the time and have dashcam footage capturing the incident, or the suspects.
Anyone with any information which could assist police enquiries is asked to call 101 quoting CR/019396/20.
