Man headbutted and robbed in York beer garden
A MAN has been headbutted and robbed in a York pub's beer garden.
Detectives fear the victim may have suffered a serious injury and appealed for him – or anyone who witnessed the attack - to contact them.
North Yorkshire Police said the attack happened in the beer garden of the Crystal Palace in Holgate Road at 2pm yesterday, but only came to light later when the landlord was reviewing CCTV footage.
“The man entered the beer garden with another man and a woman,” said a spokesman.
“They spoke with each other before the victim was head-butted and some of his property was taken. The suspect then left the premises with the woman.
“After the robbery the victim remained on the ground for some time before getting to his feet and leaving the pub.”
He said the victim was white, aged around 30 and approximately 6ft tall, with a slim build and dark hair. At the time he was wearing a lumberjack style jacket, red hooded top, blue jeans and black shoes.
The suspect was white, with a medium build, aged about 30 and with short brown hair. He was wearing a navy blue coat and blue jeans.
The woman was approximately 5ft 4in tall with long dark hair and was wearing a white body warmer, blue jeans and pink shoes.
