Lincolnshire Police are investigating reports of assault and criminal damage in Louth on New Year’s Eve and the early hours of New Year’s Day (December 31 - January 1).
There was an incident in Aswell Street at 1.36am, where criminal damage was caused to a window (incident 65 of January 1).
At 2.03am, a police officer was flagged down by a member of the public to report an assault at the taxi rank. A man was treated at Louth County Hospital for a cut lip. The offender has not been traced and the enquiry continues (incident 85 of January 1).
Then, at 2.15am, a member of the public reported having been threatened by a man near the Trinity Centre in Eastgate. There are limited lines of enquiry due to the location and a lack of nearby CCTV (incident 89 of January 1).
A police spokesman said: “As you can imagine, New Year’s Eve is a pretty busy time across the county and there are numerous reports of violence that come in.”
However, the spokesman added that - all things considered - the police had a ‘relatively peaceful night’ in Louth between 9pm on December 31 and 9am on January 1.
