Were you out in Millennium Square, Bristol, at about 11pm on Saturday 8 August? We’re appealing for witnesses after a man was left with a slash wound to his hand and a woman was punched in the face.

The victims, both in their 20s, needed hospital treatment and have yet to give a full account of the incident. The suspects are two men and all parties are described as being white.

The investigation is in its early stages but initial witnesses have described seeing a number of people in the area at the time – and have suggested that others may have been threatened by the same suspects and not yet contacted police.

It’s important to report any such incident to us either online or by calling 101, especially if you have been injured.

If you were in the area last night please check your phone and contact us if you have any pictures or footage of the incident or the moments before or after.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5220178539

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
