A couple who assaulted a man at the back of the Odeon Cinema complex on Bedford Road on June 22 are being hunted.

The suspects had walked behind the victim then the male repeatedly punched him in the face, inflicting injuries which required hospital treatment.

The male was said to be white, slim and in his thirties, with short-brown gelled hair. He was wearing a light-blue or green short-sleeved t-shirt with a “Y” on the front and three buttons down from the collar. The top had a different colour lining to the neckline and sleeves. He may have been in shorts.

The female suspect was white, in her forties or fifties and overweight.

Police are seeking witnesses. If you saw this or have any CCTV footage which might help, please call 101 and quote ref PR/45200064219. Alternatively, if you prefer to remain anonymous, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 11.

    This anti-social incident should warn GBC as they are set upon creating hidden areas behind stepped galleries that are part of Walnut Bridge replacement scheme. These areas next to the river would not be visible from Bedford Road.

    The area would remain quiet out of hours even if a ‘Plaza’ is created. There have been such anti-social incidents before, near the riverside paths close to the existing footbridge.
