An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following an incident of Grievous Bodily Harm in Marlow.
On Friday 16th October 2020, at about 9.10pm, a 24 year old man was sitting at a table at the Britannia pub in Little Marlow Road when he was approached by a group of people.
One of the group, a woman, assaulted the 24 year old man by punching him in the face. Another member of the group, a man, also punched the 24 year old man in the face.
The 24 year old man fell to the floor, where the male offender continued to assault him by punching and stamping on him despite the victim being unconscious by this stage. During the incident the 24 year old man sustained a fractured skull and lacerations which required hospital treatment.
The female offender began assaulting another woman who was in the same group as the 24 year old man by pulling her hair and hitting her in the face.
Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Peter Cave, based at High Wycombe police station, said: ‘This was an extremely violent assault which has left the victim with serious injuries and in need of hospital treatment.
This happened at a time of evening where there would have been a number of people in the pub, and therefore I would urge anyone with any information to come forward if you have not already done so.
If you have any information at all which you think could help our investigation, please get in touch as soon as possible by calling the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101, quoting reference number 43200328074.‘
