Police are appealing for information after a man suffered head injuries in an assault in Leamington in the early hours of this morning (Sunday 10 July).
Officers at Leamington Police Station would like to speak to anyone who witnessed or has dash cam of the incident in Warwick Street near the junction with Tavistock Street at between 3.10am and 3.30am.
A man in his 40s was knocked unconscious in the incident and taken to hospital where his injuries are not thought to be serious.
A 38-year-old man from Warwick was arrested shortly after the attack on suspicion of assault.
PC Gouled Dubad from Leamington Police Stations said: “This was a vicious assault with witnesses reporting the suspect continued to assault the victim as he lay defenceless on the floor. It is fortunate he wasn’t more seriously injured.

“We are conducting a number of enquiries into this incident. While the attack did take place in the early hours we believe there were still a number of people in the area who may have witnessed the incident or have dash cam footage. We would like to hear from these people if they haven’t already spoken to police.
