POLICE have released an Evofit of a man they want to trace after a 21-year-old student was subjected to an unprovoked attack as he walked home in Morecambe on Saturday, September 24.

The incident happened around 1am on Carleton Street when the victim was approached by a man who angrily accused him of breaking his window.

When the victim denied it, the offender punched and kicked him and stabbed him in the back causing a deep wound which required surgery. He then fled in the direction of Woodhill Lane.

The offender is described as a white man, between 25 and 30-years-old, with short dark hair and a noticeably flatter, wider nose.

DC Brian Shepherd from Morecambe CID said: “The offender stabbed the victim for no reason causing a significant and deep wound which only narrowly missed his vital organs. This man needs to be caught so I would appeal to the public to come forward with any information at all.”

Anyone with any information should contact DC Brian Shepherd on 01524 596712 or 01524 63333 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
