Cheltenham Assault: Are You a Witness?

Cheltenham Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in The Promenade.

The 18-year-old, who lives in the town, was hit with a bottle by a woman at about 1.15am on Saturday, October 21.

He was taken to Cheltenham General Hospital where he received treatment for a cut to his head.

Officers investigating the case believe a group of men standing near the Bella Italia restaurant may have witnessed the incident and that one may have filmed it using his mobile phone.

They are very keen to speak to these people and are urging them to get in touch as soon as possible.

A 20-year-old Cheltenham woman has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm in connection with the attack. She has been released on police bail until December 7 while inquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gloucestershire Police on 0845 090 1234, quoting incident number 104 of October 21. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
