By Mark Gorton at

Merseyside Police has released CCTV stills of a man they would like to speak to following an assault in May at Heswall’s Paradox bar.

A report was received shortly after 12.20am on May 12 that an 18-year-old man had been struck in the face with a glass while on the dancefloor at Paradox on Pensby Road, causing a laceration to his lip and chin. He was taken to hospital where he required stitches.

Officers have released a CCTV image of one man they wish to trace, as he may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Do you know who he is?

Detective Inspector Brian O’Hagan said: “This was a shocking incident, and the offender who struck the victim caused him a very deep laceration to his lip.

“We want to speak to the man pictured as we think he may be able to assist the enquiry so I would encourage him, or anyone who recognises himself, to make himself known.

“We make consistent efforts alongside partners to ensure Wirral is a safe place to work, visit and socialise and I can assure people that will act on all information to identify those responsible and put them before the courts.”
