A man was left with serious injuries after being assaulted on Above Bar Street early on Monday, March 3rd.

The 20-year-old victim was with friends at around 12:15am when he was hit by an unknown male assailant. The attack left him with injuries to his mouth and ear, and he was taken for treatment at Southampton General Hospital.

Officers would like to talk to a woman in her early twenties who they believe witnessed the assault. She was blonde, and was wearing a red jacket. A description of the suspect is not available at this time, but a 22-year-old man from Southampton was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm in connection with this assault. He has since been bailed until April 28th.

Anyone with information is urged to contact TDC Lucy Stewart at CID on 101, or call the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111.
