Police are trying to trace a man following an assault in St Helens.

Officers from Merseyside Police are appealing for help locating Phillip Maddox, from Rainford.

The force wishes to speak to the 46-year-old following an assault that took place on Saturday January 15.

Merseyside Police believes he could have information which is important to the investigation and are turning to the public for assistance as he has so far proved elusive.
