Man hurt in Front Street

Police have appealed for witnesses after a Devonshire man was found injured on Front Street on Saturday morning.

A police spokesman said the 27-year-old appeared to have been punched before he was found in the motorcycle parking lot near Pier 6 at around 3.20am.

The spokesman said: “EMTs quickly arrived on scene and transported the injured man to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance for further medical assessment. He was initially admitted to a general ward but subsequently discharged.

“Initial information suggested that he had been punched by another unknown man, described as tall and brown complexioned, wearing a white T-shirt.

“However, despite several potential witnesses in the area, none of them assisted with police efforts at the scene to establish details of the incident or a more complete description of the alleged suspect.”
