Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

Appeal for information over attack in Marine Way
Police are appealing for information over a racially-aggravated assault in which a man was hit in the face with a glass bottle outside Exmouth train station.
The victim, aged in his 20s, was attacked by a group in Marine Way at around 11.15pm on Wednesday 24 June.
He needed hospital treatment and stitches in a facial wound.
Detectives say the incident is not linked to earlier disorders that had taken place on Exmouth beach at Orcombe Point.
Detective Constable Suzie Quinton said: “This is a racially-aggravated attack and the victim was with his friends and on his way home to Exeter when he was subjected to an assault which has left him with a nasty facial injury.
“We are looking for any witnesses who would have seen the attack on the victim by a large group of males who are not believed to be local to the area.”
Police have released descriptions of two suspects in the hope members of the public can help with their enquiries.
The first is described as a white male, aged around 20, approximately 5ft 6in tall, of medium build with short, heavy black hair. He was wearing a black top and shorts.  
The second suspect is described as white male, aged in his late-30s, around 5ft 9in in height, bald, with a little beard, and of big build with a beer belly. He had tattoos up his left arm and across his chest and spoke with an Irish accent.
“They were with a group of five to six others,” said Det Con Quinton.
“The victim was hit with a beer bottle to the face.
“We are also keen to speak to anyone who may have noticed any motorhomes/caravans that were parked in the long-stay estuary car-park, just behind the train station, on Wednesday 24 June.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact police by calling 101, or emailing, quoting crime reference CR/050504/20.
Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111, or via
