POLICE in Skegness have described an assault where a man’s earlobe was bitten off as one of the “worst attacks” they have seen.
The victim was glassed, knocked to the ground and punched repeatedly before having part of his earlobe bitten off.
The attack occurred at a bar on Lumley Road at around 9.50pm on Saturday, March 31.
A police spokesperson said: “The victim was standing at the bar in a premises on Lumley Road when he was approached by a man not known to him.
“A brief conversation ensued and then, in an unprovoked attack, the offender smashed a pint glass into the victim’s face.
“The injured man was then knocked to the ground and repeatedly punched before having part of his earlobe bitten off.”
Officers investigating the serious assault have now issued a CCTV image of a man who may be able to help them with the enquiry.
