A 24-year-old local man was bitten on the left side of his face by another man at Southern Fried Chicken in St Botolphs Street at 3am on Thursday, February 13. The victim is now recovering from treatment to his injuries.

Investigating officer, Dc Andrea Ford, said: “There were a dozen or so late-night revellers who were eating at tables inside the fried chicken shop when this attack took place. It began inside the shop and then spilled out onto the street.

“The Royal Military Police did initially detain a man outside, but he was released after it was indicated that he was not responsible for the assault. As well as him, we would like to speak to those who were eating inside.”

A 30-year-old man from Darlington is currently on police bail until Tuesday, April 8 following his arrest in connection with this assault.

Anyone with information in connection with the assault is urged to contact Colchester police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
