POLICE investigating an assault have released an Evofit of a man they wish to speak to.

This follows an incident that happened at around 2.20pm on Friday April 12.

A 47-year-old man was walking along Acregate, Skelmersdale, when he was approached by two men.

In what appeared to be an unprovoked attack, the men punched and kicked him in his face and ribs before running away.

The two men have been described as white, in their early 20s and of medium build. Both were wearing tracksuit bottoms.

PC Joanne Dawson said: “This was a nasty and unprovoked assault and we are very keen to trace the people responsible.

“If you think you recognise this person please come forward.”
