Cumbrian dog walker punched in face in unprovoked attack

A man out walking his dog was punched in the face and left with a broken nose.

Police said the assault, on Sunday evening, was unprovoked.

The man was out walking along a cycle track near Esk Avenue in Whitehaven when he was approached by two men.

A force spokeswoman said he was punched in the face “for no reason whatsoever”, suffering a broken nose.

His attacker was described as being in his late teens to early 20s, around 5 ft 10 ins tall and had a local accent.

Police urged anyone with information to come forward and said dog walkers should be aware of the incident.
