Police are appealing for information after a “serious assault” in Chesterfield town centre which left the victim needing surgery.

A 22-year-old man was assaulted on Corporation Street in the vicinity of Mojo bar.

The victim recalls being approached by a man who knocked over his drink in a smoking area outside Mojo.

The next thing he remembers is being punched and kicked by a man described as stocky.

The victim suffered injuries including a broken cheek, a broken eye socket and cuts. He has had to undergo surgery as a result of the assault.

The incident, which happened sometime between midnight and 2am on Saturday, January 25, was not reported to police until almost two weeks after the assault.

Anyone who witnessed the assault or has any information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
