CCTV appeal following assault on bus in Skelmersdale

POLICE have released CCTV images of a man and a woman who they believe could be potential witnesses to an assault which happened on a bus in Skelmersdale over a year ago.

The incident took place on Saturday 19 October 2013 on a bus which was travelling from Wigan to Skelmersdale. As the bus got to the Castlehey area of Skelmersdale, the victim, a boy who was 16 years old at the time, was attacked near to the back seats.

We are keen to trace them and if either of them see this appeal, we would urge them to come forward and get in touch with us. Similarly, we would urge anyone who recognises the man and woman pictured or who has any information about what happened to contact us.”
