A man has sustained a fractured nose and cheekbone following a serious assault in Taunton on Sunday 19th July.

The incident happened at 12.15am outside Mambo on Mill Lane, where the 43-year-old man was pinned against the wall and punched in the face a number of times. He received treatment for his injuries at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Officers investigating the serious assault have released a CCTV image of three men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

All three men are seen wearing black clothing. One was wearing just a t-shirt, another was wearing a jacket with white t-shirt underneath and the other was wearing a hooded top with logo on the front. 

PC Kyle Gibbs-Hartley, who is investigating the incident, said: “This is a nasty incident where the victim sustained four or five heavy punches to the face, causing a fractured nose and cheekbone. I would like to hear from anyone that might have witnessed the incident at the time or who recognises any of the three men.”
