Police are appealing for a vital witness to come forward following an assault in Bedale.

It occurred between 9pm and 10pm on Saturday 14 May 2011, when a 26-year-old local man was walking on Exelby Road in the town. While he was in the lay-by close to Bridge Grange Farm, a car stopped and three youths got out before assaulting him. They then left before returning a short time later and committing a second assault.

As a result of the assault, the man received a black eye, a bloodied nose and bruising to his face and head.

At the time of the incident a woman contacted the police to say she had seen a man in the lay-by, however she did not leave her details.

I believe she may have vital information which could help to identify the offenders and I ask that she contacts the police straight away.”
