We are appealing for information following a serious assault in Blackpool.

Police were called around 8.10pm on Wednesday (July 10) to reports a man had been attacked by two men in Westmorland Avenue.

It is believed the victim was knocked unconscious with the alleged offenders making off from the scene in a grey car.

The victim eventually left the scene and officers are appealing for information to help find him.

He is described as white, of medium build and was wearing a light-coloured t-shirt, blue shorts, black socks and black trainers.

Following enquiries police have arrested one man in connection with their investigation.

Detectives are urging the injured man to come forward.

Det Sgt Sam Johnson, of Blackpool Police, said: “We are keen to trace the man described. We believe he suffered some serious injuries before making off from the scene.

“If this was you, or you recognise the man described, please come forward.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or email quoting log 1559 of July 10. Alternatively independent charity CrimeStoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.

A 37-year-old man from Blackpool was arrested on suspicion of affray and released under investigation pending further enquiries.
