A teenager was bottled during an unprovoked attack.

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was assaulted on Out Moss Lane in Morecambe.

At 9.30pm on Tuesday 18 June, the teenager was walking alongthe lane, near to the Trimpell Club, when he was approached by another male, possibly in his late teens, who punched him. As the 16-year old tried to defend himself, a woman then lashed out at him with a bottle.

As he held up his hands to protect himself, the bottle smashed causing cuts to his hands.

The man and woman were then pulled away from the victim by two other people they were with and they all left in the direction of Newlands Road.

The man has an Irish accent, with collar length, dark brown, greasy hair and was wearing dark trousers. The woman is also described as having an Irish accent, with straight, shoulder length, blonde hair and was wearing black jogging bottoms and a black cardigan.

PC Ben Hanley said: “This was a nasty, unprovoked assault which has left the teenager with cuts to his hands and slight injuries to his face, as well as being understandably shaken by the incident.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101.
