Man’s face slashed in ‘random’ Lincoln Ermine attack

A teenage boy was arrested after a man was left with cuts to his face in an alleged ‘unprovoked and random attack’ in Lincoln.

The assault took place on the footpath near the park at the bottom of Welbourn Gardens in the Ermine area of Lincoln at around 6.30pm on August 4.

A 42-year-old male was approached by a man described as white, aged in his teens and with brown hair. It is believed he has assaulted the victim and left him with cuts to his face.

A 14-year-old boy was arrested and released under investigation.
