AN ATTACKER continued to assault a man as he lay unconscious on the ground during a violent attack in Leamington town centre at the weekend.

Police are appealing for information following the attack in the early hours of Sunday morning (July 10) which led to the man suffering head injuries.

Officers at Leamington Police Station would like to speak to anyone who witnessed or has dash cam footage of the incident in Warwick Street, near the junction with Tavistock Street, at between 3.10am and 3.30am.

The man, in his 40s, was knocked unconscious in the incident which took place in front of horrified onlookers and was taken to hospital where his injuries are not thought to be serious.

A 38-year-old man from Warwick was arrested shortly after the attack on suspicion of assault.

PC Gouled Dubad from Leamington Police Station said: “This was a vicious assault with witnesses reporting the suspect continued to assault the victim as he lay defenceless on the floor. It is fortunate he wasn’t more seriously injured.

“An arrest was made quickly after the incident and the suspect has since been bailed while our investigation continues.

“We are conducting a number of enquiries into this incident. While the attack did take place in the early hours we believe there were still a number of people in the area who may have witnessed the incident or have dash cam footage. We would like to hear from these people if they haven’t already spoken to police.

“Information can be provided by calling 101 quoting incident 50 of 10 July 2022.

“It can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111”.
