POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was assaulted by a gang in a Cleveleys alleyway.
The 18-year-old was on a night out with his brother when he was confronted by a group of eight to 10 men.
Without warning, the victim was punched in the face and knocked to the ground by one of the men. After getting back on to his feet, a second man then head-butted him.
The victim suffered a broken jaw which needed an operation and five metal plates. The attach was in an alley behind the Regal Hotel on Victoria Road West on Saturday, May 21 between 9.30pm and 10pm.
The two men are described as white, around six feet tall and stocky build. One had short black hair and was wearing jeans and a black jumper. A second man had spiked blond or light brown hair and was wearing a blue T-shirt.
