A 25-year-old man suffered a possible broken jaw after he was assaulted at a Lowestoft pub.

The 25-year-old was on the dancefloor at The Crown public house in Lowestoft High Street about 12.30am on Sunday (February 6) when he was approached by a white man, in his late teens to early 20s, about 5ft 6ins tall, of skinny build with spiky brown hair and wearing a brown polo top and punched in the face.

The attacker then left with two other men, while an ambulance was called a short time later and the 25-year-old was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for treatment.

• Police are asking anyone who saw the incident or anyone with information about the man involved to call PC 1633 Thompson on 01986 835300.
