We’re investigating an assault which happened in Bristol on Friday 29 October and have issued an image of a man we’d like to identify in connection with this incident (see image below).

At approximately 5.30pm, a man, in his 40s, was exiting a shop in Ashley Road when he collided with an e-scooter, causing its unknown male rider to come off.
