Police appeal to find ‘student’ witnesses after man is seriously injured in Exeter pub assault

Police have appealed for witnesses after an assault in an Exeter pub left a man with serious injuries.  

Officers would in particular like to find a group of ‘students’ who may have seen the attack in the Stoke Arms on Monday, November 11.

The force says an altercation erupted between two men, who were known to one-another and had been playing pool, in the Prince Charles Road premises between 9.30pm and 10.30pm.

One of the men was punched several times in the head and the attack continued into the pub’s car park.

The victim, aged in his late 20s, was left with a broken collarbone and head injuries from which he is recovering.

Police say the two men spoke to a group by the pool table before the incident.

Detective Constable Charles Wilkes said: “We wish to speak to the group by the pool table, thought to be students, as they may have seen what happened and have vital information to help with our investigation.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police via 101@dc.police.uk, or by calling 101, quoting CR/102174/19.”

Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org
