Police Appeal for Information Following Serious Assault in Tring

Living Magazines Police Appeal

Police are now seeking information and witnesses as part of their continuing investigation into a serious assault in Tring.

The incident happened at The Black Horse pub on Frogmore Street at approximately 11.52pm on Saturday 16 December 2023.

It is reported that the male victim was at the pub and was punched in the face by another man, resulting in him sustaining serious eye injuries which required hospital treatment.

PC Jake Smith, of the Dacorum Local Crime Unit, said: ‘We have been investigating this assault since it was reported to us in December, and supporting the victim as he receives ongoing treatment for his injuries. It has been an understandably difficult time for him, and he has only just felt able to consent to a public appeal for information.

‘Therefore, I am now appealing for anyone who may have been in the pub on the night to trace their memory back in case they witnessed the incident or the lead up to it. The pub would have been busy given that it was the penultimate weekend before Christmas, so we are hoping that some of the other customers present will be able to help us with our enquiries.

‘If you have any information about the assault, no matter how significant or insignificant you believe it may be, please contact me.’
