GARDAÍ in West Cork are seeking mobile phone footage and witnesses to an assault that took place last year.

A man was struck on the nose and had his mobile phone stolen in an attack in Bandon in August of 2019.

An appeal has now been issued regarding information on the incident.

A Garda statement this morning said: “Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in relation to a robbery and assault incident that occurred on the 5th August, 2019 at South Main Street, Bandon, Co. Cork.

“At approximately 3.30am, a man in his 30s was walking home after a night out when he approached by three men, one of which stuck him on the nose and stole his mobile phone. The three men then left the scene in the direction of North Main Street.

“The suspect who is believed to have assaulted the man is described as stocky, approx. 5ft 10, mid to late 20s, short fair hair and was unshaven. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans that were ripped on the front of the legs, and black runners.
