Humberside Police have received reports of two men, aged 21 and 24, having been assaulted off Annandale Road in East Hull.  The men reported that they were set upon by up to 10 youths as they were heading home after a night out in Hull.

The assault has resulted in two young men sustaining serious facial injuries.  It is alleged that the incident happened at around 10.30pm on Sunday 27 May. The incident occured at a takeaway on Elmbridge Parade.  Following the attack the offenders left and headed towards Preston Road.

“A Matter of Urgency”

Inspector Mark Peasgood of East Hull Community Policing Team said:

Anyone who knows anything about this incident should call us as a matter of urgency.  These two young men were going about their business when they were assaulted and we want to find the people who did it.

We have been working hard  in the past year with the shopkeepers and local community to bring about a positive change to the Greatfield Estate.  The shopwatch and community watch schemes that have been set up with the help of the Police and Crime Commissioner have been helping us all to work much more closely together and is seeing real changes and improvements in the area with reduced crime and anti-social behaviour.

We have not received any reports of gangs of youths gathering in the area and if people are seeing this happen we want to know about it.  If we don’t know about it we cannot do anything to deal with them.  You can call us on 101 or speak to my officers on the ground or at the regular local police surgery at the Coop.

Witness Appeal

An investigation has been launched into the two assaults and police are asking for anyone with information to call them on 101. When calling please quote log 710 of 27/05/18
