Detectives looking for witnesses after Colchester bar assault

First published in Countywide

DETECTIVES are hoping to identify potential witnesses following an assault in Silk Road.

The attack took place in the early hours of Sunday, February 9.

Officers have tried to track down the witnesses themselves and are now appealing for help from the public.

A 19-year-old man sustained facial injuries during the incident at the bar in St Botolph's Street, Colchester.

If you know any of the three people pictured please call Det Con Hannah Richardson at Colchester CID on 101.

Looking at the picture, my money is on the chap on the right being the culprit.

And it's the girl's birthday!

I would say that's better than any grainy cctv image we usually see, so should be no problem tracing them!

The Police have now changed the appeal, only wanting to speck to the males in the picture, the female came forward, hope they do the same thing & come forward, unless they have something to hide ?.

February seems like a long time to start asking for witnesses now, but lets hope they find whoever it is.

Agree February was a long time ago and hopefully they will be identified! The fact is someone committed a crime and if you can identify the faces of those in the photo please report them. With the amount if horrific crime that has taken place in colchester recently it's about time people stopped thinking they were going to get away with it!

6 months after this attack and the police have just started their enquiries. This just shows what a poor state our police are in. Well done conservatives

Closeguard I could not agree with you more. I'm sorry guys, but what is wrong with Essex cops. We have FAR more crime here, shootings every week, homicides. and yet our investigations start at once, we don't waste a minute, let alone months......

It doesn't actually state that the two unidentified males are the perpetrators of the attack, just that they are looking for witnesses. They could be quite innocent in all of this?
