We are appealing for information following an assault in a supermarket in Bootle yesterday, Wednesday 15 December.
At around 4.45pm we received a report that a man had been assaulted in Asda on Strand Road, Bootle.
It was reported that, following an verbal altercation with a male and a female, the man was assaulted with a wheel wrench.
The male was reported to have made off via the rear of the store on foot.
Emergency services attended and the victim was taken to hospital for a facial injury. He has now been discharged.
CCTV and witness enquiries into the incident are ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
