POLICE appeals have been launched after a man and woman were assaulted in separate incidents in Lowestoft and Kessingland.

Witnesses and information are being sought after a man suffered a broken jaw after trouble flared in London Road South, and in a separate incident a woman was attacked in a Kessingland alleyway.

A 39-year-old man was assaulted near the Carlton public house between 6pm and 7pm on Saturday, February 28 by a man described as white, around 6ft 6ins tall, in his mid 20s to early 30s, with dark hair in a crew cut style.

The 39-year-old had been outside having a cigarette when he noticed the man and a woman having a verbal argument. There was another woman and a child who appeared to be with them. The child appeared to be upset so the 39-year-old spoke to the man, and was then assaulted.
