Man suffers fractured wrist and back after attack outside Oxford pub

The assault took place on Sunday morning outside the Cow & Creek pub in New Road.

At approximately 12.35am on Sunday morning, two groups left the Cow & Creek and an argument occurred between the victim, his sister, and another group of men.

This argument turned physical and the victim, a man aged in his twenties, was punched and thrown to the ground.

He was treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital for a fractured wrist and vertebrae and was later discharged.

Two men, both aged 22 and from Witney, were arrested on suspicion of affray and inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and have been released on police bail until 24 December.

Investigating officer PC Jessica Fox, of Oxford CID, said: “I am appealing to anybody who witnessed this incident to please get in touch with Thames Valley Police, either by making a report online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43210537692.

“There was a lot of activity with people trying to break apart the involved parties, and so I believe there will have been many witnesses to what happened.

“The Cow & Creek was at full capacity at the time, and there were many people in the area, and so I’m confident that others will have witnessed this incident.

“If you have not already spoken to police, I would urge you to please get in touch with us.

“I’d also be keen to hear from anybody who may have mobile phone or dash-cam footage from the area at the time of the incident to please check this and contact us if you have anything that can assist the investigation.

“For 100% anonymity, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
