Do you recognise this man? We want to speak to him after an elderly woman was assaulted following an altercation between two groups in Ormskirk last weekend.

It happened between 10:50pm and 11pm on Saturday (June 16th) on the Wheatsheaf car park off Railway Road when two groups of men have been arguing and throwing bricks at each other.

The victim, a 71 year old street pastor, has intervened to calm the situation when she was punched to the face, causing her to fall to the floor and lose consciousness.

A 50 year old man was also hit by a black Audi during the melee. The driver made off from the area.

DC Michael Feeley from West Lancashire CID said: “It is utterly disgusting to think that an elderly woman, just acting as a pacifist, was punched so hard she landed on the pavement and was knocked unconscious.

“We are investigating the full circumstances around the altercation between the groups, the woman being attacked and the man being hit by the car.

“If you recognise the man pictured or you have any information that could assist without inquiries, please make contact with us.”

You can call 01695 566166 or if you fail to get an answer, 101, quoting incident reference 1669 of June 16th.
