Police investigate assault

Police in Douglas want to trace a couple they believe were responsible for an assault in the town centre in the early hours of morning on Saturday.

A man was punched in the face after an altercation with the pair outside the HSBC Bank on Prospect Hill at just after 1am. He'd apparently made comments about the woman's appearance.

Police say he was left with a nasty cut above his eye.

The alleged attacker is described as white, five feet ten tall, with distinctive tattooed ears. He left the scene via the steps behind Marks and Spencer. The woman was five feet seven, had long brown hair and wore boots and fishnet stockings.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact police headquarters.
