Barman left with fractured jaw after brutal assault

A BARMAN was left with a fractured jaw and numerous facial injuries after he was brutally assaulted outside his own pub.

The victim asked a group of men and women who were drinking outside the Chestnut pub in Lansdowne Road between 9pm and 10pm on Saturday (October 26) to move from the doorway as they were blocking other customers from getting inside and he was not happy with their behaviour.

But they responded by punching him and then kicking him while he was on the floor.

Witnesses to the incident said the group had arrived and then left in a black hired car.

The member of staff was taken to hospital where he was treated for a number of injuries to his face including a fractured jaw.

One of the men involved in the assault was described as white, 6ft tall, of athletic build and had short ginger hair gelled up at the front. He was wearing dark trousers and a grey top.

PC Allan Figueiredo from Worcester Police Station said: “This was an utterly needless assault on a man simply doing his job.

“We are attempting to contact all those who were in the Chestnut on Saturday evening, so if you were there, please get in touch.

“Also, if anyone has any information about who was responsible for the assault, I urge them to contact West Mercia Police.”

PC Figueiredo can be contacted via the non-emergency police number 101 or information can be passed on anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
