Man who punched through car window sought by police

POLICE are trying to trace a man who punched through a car window after confronting a group of people outside a Fishponds pub.

Officers say an "intoxicated man" was reported being "verbally aggressive" in Beechwood Road, outside the Old Post Office.

A police spokesperson said: "The man punched the rear window of one of the group’s vehicle, a black Mercedes A Class, causing it to smash."

A CCTV picture has been released today of a man police want to trace in connection with the incident.

They say he is white, of large build, with black facial hair, and was wearing a black baseball cap with a logo on the front at the time of the incident, on Saturday May 7 at around 9pm.

The spokesperson added: "We would like to speak to the man in the CCTV footage we are releasing as we believe he will be able to help us with our enquiries."

Anyone who recognises the man in the picture is being urged to call 101 and quote the crime reference number 5222 108 106 or contact the police online.
