Detectives have issued CCTV images of three people who could have information that may assist with their enquiries following an assault in Prescot.
At around 4.45pm on Sunday 25 September an altercation occurred on St Helens Road involving four people near to the Prescot Guild pub, where a man in his 50s was assaulted by another man and suffered a serious head injury.
The victim received treatment from hospital and is still recovering from his injury at home.
The alleged offender left the scene soon after the incident.
CCTV and witness enquiries are ongoing to identify the suspect responsible, and detectives have issued images of three people they believe could assist with their investigation.
Detective Inspector Lisa Milligan said: “This was a serious assault which has left the victim injured and he is still recovering from his head injury, and such violence like this will never be tolerated on Merseyside.
“This incident took place at a time when St Helens Road would have been busy with people and vehicles driving by, so if you were in the vicinity at around 4.30pm onwards and saw anything then please contact us.
"I am also appealing for people to come forward if you recognise the people featured in these images. We believe they could hold information that could be vital to our continuing enquiries.” Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact @MerPolCC on Twitter or ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook with reference 22000712874.
