Police appeal following assault

Merseyside Police is continuing to appeal for information following the assault of three men on Colquitt Street, Liverpool city centre, in the early hours of Friday, 19 December.

Police believe three men were involved in an assault on PC Neil Doyle and two of his colleagues at around 3.15am and are urging anyone with information to come forward. The area was very busy when the incident happened.

Detective Superintendent, Mike Shaw, said: “Incidents such as these are very rare in our city.  Liverpool is a really safe city for students, locals and visitors alike and we are determined to keep it that way.  If anyone has information about PC Doyle’s murder and hasn’t come forward yet, I’d ask them to get in contact with us as soon as possible.” 

Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.  Anyone with information can call the investigation team on 0800 230 0600 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
