Police would like to speak to this man following an 
assault in a pub in Hemel town centre.

The incident happened between midnight and 12.30am, in the early hours of Sunday, May 26, when a 25-year-old man was in the Market Arms Tavern on
Waterhouse Street.

He was standing near a pillar close to the door when he lost his footing and stumbled into another man. This man responded by 
hitting the victim with the beer glass, causing a gash to his cheek.

The assailant then immediately left the pub.

Although the victim was treated at the scene by pub staff he was then taken to hospital for significant 
further treatment as a result of heavy bleeding. He is now recovering at home.
