Merseyside Police have issued images of a man they would like to speak to following an assault in Southport in the early hours of Sunday 1 May.

A 27 year-old woman was assaulted by a man and pulled to the floor on Waverley Street at around 4.30am.

The woman had followed a man from a local bar after an allegation had been made about the theft of two mobile phones.

She wasn’t badly injured but suffered grazing to her hands, legs and feet.

The man is described as being in his mid-20s, between 5ft 8in-5ft 10in tall, of slim to medium build. He was wearing a dark coloured jacket with a zip, a red T-shirt and blue jeans and khaki green baseball cap.

Police have issued a photograph of a man they believe could help them with their enquiries.

The man, anyone who recognises him, or anyone with any information about the incident, is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
