Man arrested following assault with bat on passengers leaving Barnsley taxi

An investigation has been launched following a serious assault in the Darfield area of Barnsley on Sunday 12 July.

It is reported that at around 4.20pm Sunday afternoon, a 26-year-old man and his friend were walking along Venetian Crescent after getting out of a taxi.

The pair were then approached by a group of people unknown to them, who allegedly began shouting abuse.

An older male then approached the victim, before hitting him with a bat and leaving him with serious injuries to his face and body.

Officers were called and on arrival at the scene arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of assault. He has since been released under investigation.

Anyone who has any information which could assist officers in their enquires are being urged to call 101 quoting incident number 655 of 12 July.
