A MAN is being sought in connection with an assault after two men were caught urinating on a car.

The incident took place on Christmas Day in Holloway Street at around 2.45pm.

Avon and Somerset Police is hoping to hear from any witnesses to the incident.

Officers say the victim was having lunch with his stepfather and other family members in the Queens Head public house, when his stepfather looked out of the window and saw two men urinating on his car.

The victim went outside and challenged the two men. There was a short discussion and one of the suspects punched him in the head and the other then slapped him in the head. They then left the scene.

The victim did not require medical treatment for the injury.

An image of a man has been released by the police, as officers would like to speak to him regarding the incident.

A police spokesperson said: "We are keen to trace anyone who was in the area at the time who may have witnesses the incident or captured it on mobile phone footage.

"We’d particularly like to trace the man in the image who we believe was in Holloway Street at the time of the incident and who might have information to help our enquiries into the incident.

"We’d like the man, or anyone who recognises him, to contact us, quoting reference 5219296291.

"It is possible that the man is not from West Somerset and was staying in the area during the Christmas break."
