Lowestoft: Police seeking witnesses to two incidents

POLICE are appealing for witnesses following two incidents in Lowestoft.

Witness are being sought following an altercation on Lowestoft’s Bascule Bridge around midnight on Saturday, June 23.

Two women and a man were heading across the bridge when they were approached by an 18-year-old man and a woman. A verbal dispute quickly became physical and a 49-year-old man sustained a gash to his head, a 49-year-old woman sustained pain and bruising to her face including a black eye and a 38-year-old woman also sustained a black eye in the incident.

The 18-year-old man was later arrested by police and he was interviewed before being bailed to return to officers on August 12, while further enquiries are carried out.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the altercation – particularly a man and woman who spoke to one of the parties involved in the immediate aftermath of the incident.

Officers are also seeking witnesses following an incident where a 14-year-old boy sustained bites and scratches after he was attacked by a Staffordshire Terrier-type dog in Normanston Park on Friday, June 22.

The teenager was walking through the park at about 10pm and was near the skate park area when he was set upon by the dog which bit him several times in the leg, back, and hip.
