We’re appealing for witnesses and information following an attempted robbery which took place on Deanery Road near College Green, Bristol on Tuesday 6 April at about 9.35pm.

The victim, a man in his early 20s, was approached by three men who asked him for money before punching him in the face, causing him facial injuries which required hospital treatment. He has since been discharged.
