Officers investigating an assault on man in Weymouth are issuing a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to.
At around 4.30am on Friday 18 October 2019 it was reported that a 24-year-old man was approached by two men after leaving Actor's bar in the town. One of the men hit the victim over the back of the head near to McDonald's on St Mary Street.
The victim went to his car, which was parked at the MFA Bowl car park. The offenders also got in, ordering him to drive. When he refused, one of the men punched him several times, causing significant bleeding to his face and mouth.
The victim was then pushed out of the car before being forced into the back seat. The car was subsequently driven to Carlton Road South where the victim was told to get out, which he did.
His car was later found in Southview Road with the lights on, engine running and driver's door open.
Detective Constable Declan Cummings, of Weymouth CID, said:
"I appreciate this incident happened a while ago, but I have recently obtained a CCTV image that could help me in my investigation.
"I would urge anyone who recognises the man in this image to please get in touch."
