Witness appeal after man seriously assaulted in Havant

We are appealing for witnesses after a man was seriously assaulted in Havant last night (Saturday 2 March).


Shortly before 10.45pm police were called to reports of an altercation taking place between a group of men on West Street.


As a result of the incident a man in his 40s sustained a broken leg and a second man in his 40s reported minor injuries.


We attended the scene and have arrested a 27-year-old man on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm. He remains in police custody at the current time and an investigation into the circumstances of the incident is ongoing today.



As part of our ongoing enquiries we would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and saw what happened. Perhaps you were driving along West Street and captured dash cam footage of the incident, the moments leading up to it or the aftermath?


Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 44240092378.


Alternatively, go online and submit information via https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
