Police appeals after two separate assaults in Gloucester

Police are appealing for information on two separate assaults in Gloucester over the weekend.

Officers were called to Columbia Close at 7pm on Friday evening where a 29-year-old man was found with serious facial injuries.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Because the incident occurred in an area that is overlooked by a number of flats, Police are appealing for anyone who saw the incident to get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote incident 357 of May 31.

The injured man was taken to hospital for treatment on his injuries.

The second incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning when officers were called to Eastgate Street at around 4.30am after reports of an assault near to Andy Cars.

It is believed that an altercation broke out and that a male was punched and sustained a suspected jaw injury that required hospital treatment.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault. Police are urging anyone with information or who may have witnessed the assault to call 101 and quote incident 118 of June 2.
