Two men sought after assault on cyclist

Taunton assault appeal

Police are issuing photographs of two men we wish to identify as part of their enquiries into an assault in Taunton.

A cyclist was riding along Duke Street at approximately 4.30pm on Saturday 17 April when stopped by a number of unknown males and assaulted. The cyclist was taken to Musgrove Park Hospital having suffered facial injuries.

A 25-year-old man has been arrested and released under investigation.

We wish to speak with the two men, pictured, who we hope can assist our investigation.

They are described as:

Person 1 – male, white and wearing a white T-shirt and dark trousers.

Person 2 – male, white and wearing a red T-shirt, black gilet, black and yellow shorts and a baseball cap.

Witnesses to the assault, or people who recognise the two people, are asked to call 101 and give reference number 5221082152.
