Police are hunting this man in connection with a serious assault in St Helens.

At about 8.15pm on Monday, October 27, a 54-year-old man was assaulted by another man on Parade Street. Both men had previously been inside Seddon News on Vincent Street.

The victim sustained facial injuries as a result of the incident and was taken to hospital for treatment. He was later discharged, but subsequently died at his home on November 9.

At this time police do not believe the assault played any part in his death and the matter has been referred to the coroner.

However, officers believe the man pictured may be able to assist them with their investigation into the assault and are urging him, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch.

An investigation into the incident is on-going.

Anyone who recognises this man, or anyone with information, can contact police on 0151 777 6049 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
