A 38-year-old man has been left requiring titanium plates to his jaw after he suffered a double fracture during an assault which took place in a Flitwick pub on Friday night (March 7).
The incident took place between 11.45pm and 12.15am in the Bumblebee pub in Coniston Road, Flitwick, after the victim had been refused service by staff members.
When the victim turned around he was punched in the face and fell backwards onto the floor.
The victim’s friends picked him up and ushered him out of the pub and took him home.
The following day, the victim went to hospital for treatment to his injuries and an X-ray revealed that his jaw had been broken in two places as a result of the assault and that he would require surgery.
Detective Constable Amanda Durrant, who is investigating the attack, would like to hear from anyone who was in the pub at the time of the assault or from anyone who may have information about the offender.
“This was a very serious assault which has left the victim with nasty injuries that have required extensive surgery. The pub was extremely busy at the time of this assault and I would urge anyone who witnessed the attack taking place to get in contact with us so that we can identify the offender.”
