Man left with serious face injury after scaffolding pole thrown during March Market Place confrontation
A MAN suffered a serious injury to his face after having a scaffolding pole thrown at him when two groups confronted each other in March Market Place.
The assault happened at around 5.15pm on Saturday following a disorder in the Red Lion pub in High Street, March. The group, who had been in the pub, came out onto the market square and confronted another group near The Square pub.
Around 15 people were involved in the skirmish and a 32-year-old was struck in the face by the pole. He was taken to hospital and treated for a serious injury to his face.
The attacker made off and is described as white, 20-30 years old, with a shaven head. He was wearing a light blue or white sweat shirt or coat and blue jeans.
