Police are appealing for information about two men following an assault in Bispham.
Police were called around 8.30pm on October 6 to reports of an incident on Queen’s Promenade.
Around 8.10pm a 65-year-old man had been travelling on a tram when he got off close to Madison Avenue.
As he started walking towards Bispham Tram Station a man approached the victim from behind and grabbed him. A second man then punched the victim in the face.
