North East Lincolnshire

31 Jul 2019

A 24-year-old man from Lincolnshire is in hospital being treated for serious head injuries following a serious assault in Cleethorpes in the early hours of Sunday 28 July.

It happened on Saint Peter’s Avenue just after 3am. The victim was allegedly knocked unconscious and suffered a bleed on the brain, a blood clot, and a fractured skull. 

He has been taken to hospital for treatment, but his injuries are not said to be life threatening. 

We are appealing for information in connection with this. The suspect we want to find has been described as a white man in his mid 20s with brown hair, around 5 feet 10 and skinny. He was wearing blue jeans and a white top with grey shoulders. 

He could have been riding a bicycle.

Did you see anything? We think there were a number of witnesses in the area at the time who we would like to speak with.
