Victim in hospital following brutal attack

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was attacked in a Warwick park.

The victim was cycling though St Nicholas’ Park, in between the tearoom and paddling pool area, at around 6.50pm on Sunday May 13, when he was assaulted by four men.

The 23-year-old sustained head injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

The attackers were described as aged between 17 and 20-years-old and thought to be part of a group of seven people.

One was wearing grey, black and navy jogging bottoms, another was wearing a grey velour hooded top and the other was wearing a black padded jacket.

PC Mark Finch said: “This assault took place in a busy part of the park, and we are appealing to anyone who witnessed the offence to please come forward.

“The assault left the victim with head injuries that required hospital treatment, and an investigation is currently ongoing to identify and locate those responsible.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
