A Louth man required specialist surgery after being seriously assaulted by another man near to the Wilkinson’s store in the town centre in the early hours of Friday.
Police were called to Eastgate in the town at 1.15am after a 20-year-old local man suffered a serious fractured jaw after being punched during an altercation.
The victim was taken to hospital in Grimsby but later transferred to Hull Royal Infirmary for specialist surgery.
The offender is described as a white male, of stocky build, with dark hair and was wearing jeans and a white top.
DC Scott Miller would particularly like to hear from anyone who was in Samuel’s Nightclub that night and who may have information that could identify the offender.
Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police by dialling 101 and quoting incident 37 of August 2.
