Police issued an appeal today for any witnesses to a reported assault of a 22-year-old man, believed to be a Warwick resident, who was assaulted by three other men, while one stood at the door of the Warwick Post Office.

Police say the incident occurred around 4pm on Monday (December 16).

A spokesman said the victim “walked through the front entrance of the post office”, when he was approached; a short time later, by “three other males”, while “a fourth male” stood at the front door.

“The three males then punched the 22-year-old man in front of astonished customers before all four males quickly left the building,” he said.

Apparently the 22-year-old man had no visible injuries following the brief assault.

“The suspects are described as four brown complexioned males wearing dark coloured jackets and black helmets. It is believed that they left the area on separate motorcycles,” he added.

The Bermuda Police Service is also aware that video footage of the incident is circulating as inquiries continue.

 “Any witnesses that have not already come forward – or any members of the public with relevant information – are encouraged to call the main police telephone number 295-0011 or the independent and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477 as soon as possible.”
