Appeal launched to identify man following assault at a pub in Chandler’s Ford

Do you recognise this man?


Officers have today (8 March) released a CCTV image of a man that they would like to speak with in connection with an assault at the Cricketers Arms in Chandler’s Ford on Saturday 5 February.


It comes after a staff member had become involved in an altercation with a man, after the staff member had asked the man’s friend to leave the venue.


The man has then allegedly reacted to this request and grabbed the staff member by the neck before further assaulting him on the floor. The staff member received minor injuries as a result.


Officers have conducted initial enquiries but are now asking if anyone knows who this man is to come forward and let them know. Although they appreciate that the image is not the clearest.


Were you in the pub at the time of the incident? Did you see what happened?


Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to call police on 101 and quote crime reference number 44220050498.
