Investigation into report of assault on two people, Lincoln
Main article content
Can you help us piece together what’s happened following a report of a serious assault in Lincoln?
We are investigating a report that two people were assaulted in the Newark Road area at some time between 8.45pm and 9pm last night (Monday 2 October).
Officers were called to a property in Newark Road, Lincoln, between Victoria Street and Ellison Street at 9.12pm to reports a man had been injured. On arrival, they found two men with injuries who were treated by ambulance crews at the scene. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The men reported being approached by two men they didn’t know before being assaulted.
The exact time and location time of the incident is unclear, and this is part of our appeal.
We know this is a busy residential area, and there will be people in the community, either in properties nearby, working, or driving in the area, who could have information who we have not yet spoken with.
We’re asking you to help our investigators find out what happened.
We ask that you view any dashcam footage, or any other recording, and see if it has captured an altercation between several people in the nearby area between 8.45pm and 9pm. We are particularly keen to view anything which may have taken place on the grassy areas in that location, and along the river.
One of the suspects is described as white, around 6ft tall with blond hair and was wearing a balaclava, dark grey hooded jacket, black trousers and dark trainers with a reflective strip on the back. The other man was said to be wearing a black hooded jacket, black tracksuit bottoms, and black trainers with a reflective heel.
Officers are in the local area today carrying out further investigations, and you can approach them with information.
