A MAN had his jaw broken after he was assaulted in Fareham.

An argument took place between two groups – each consisting of two males and a female aged in their 20s.

The victim, a 20-year-old Fareham man, was punched in the face by a man, breaking his jaw in two places.

The offender then fled the scene with his group towards the bus station after which two of the group got into a small silver car and drove off.

Police are now appealing for witnesses.

It happened on Friday, March 9, on West Street at its junction of Grove Road between 9.45pm and 10pm.

Investigating officer DC Wes Arnold appealed for anyone who saw the attack or who has information about it to come forward.

‘As this incident took place between 9.30pm and 10pm on a Friday night, this area of the town centre would have been busy and as such members of the public may have witnessed this brief attack,’ he said.

Anyone with any information is asked to call DC Arnold at Fareham Police station on 101.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
