Man suffers broken eye socket and cheekbone in Scarborough attack
A MAN suffered a broken eye socket and a broken cheekbone in an attack in Scarborough.
The man, who is in his twenties, was walking through Esplanade Gardens on his way to work at about 8.10am on Sunday, September 15, when he was attacked from behind by three men and punched repeatedly.
Detective Constable Sarah Margetts, of Scarborough CID, said: “This was a nasty, seemingly unprovoked attack which left the victim with some serious injuries, which required a four-hour operation to have metal plates put in his face.
“He is currently off work without pay, whilst he is recovering from his injuries and is hoping to get back to his job next week. I am appealing to anyone who can assist the investigation to come forward and help us to find those responsible.”
Anyone with information should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, email email@example.com or phone Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
