Original release

We are appealing for help to identify the men in the images as they may be able to help with our enquiries into an assault.

Just before 2pm on Friday 17th December, a group of males reportedly pursued a man who was cycling through the town centre in Lincoln.

They reportedly followed the victim until he reached the Minerva Building at the University of Lincoln.

The victim sustained facial injuries after he was repeatedly punched and kicked.

Male 1 (left) is described as white, believed to be in his late teens and is of a slim build with short dark hair. He was wearing brown smart shoes and a light blue/grey suit jacket with a turquoise blue Adidas top underneath.

Male 2 (middle) is of a similar description and he was believed to be wearing dark blue suit trousers, brown smart shoes and a brown jacket with a dark hood.

Male 3 (right) is also of a similar description and was believed to be wearing a dark blue suit jacket and trousers, brown smart shoes and a black jumper with a white logo and a white shirt underneath.

We appreciate that the attached images are not of the best quality, but we are keen to identify the men in the images as we believe they can help us in our investigation.
