Serious assault: Local man left with facial injuries requiring reconstruction surgery after a serious assault in Lincoln.

Police are appealing for information after an assault in Lincoln that left a man with serious facial injuries that required reconstruction surgery.

The assault took place at around 10pm on December 16 at a boxing event at Yarborough Leisure Centre on Riseholme Road.

A 35-year-old man left the event and was in a secluded area of the grounds when he was approached by what he believes was two offenders.

He was punched in the head and left with a serious facial injury, which required facial reconstruction surgery. He also lost a couple of teeth.

Local enquiries led to no result and officers are now appealing for any witnesses, or anyone with any information, to get in touch and help them with their enquiries.

Anyone with any information should contact DC Cath Leeman via the 101 number, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
