A MAN was left with a four-inch gash in his head after a beer glass was smashed onto him.

Detectives investigating the assault in Southend are appealing for independent witnesses.

The 33 year old victim from Southend received a four inch cut to the back of his head at around 7pm on the Eastern Esplanade near to the Halfway House pub on June 12.

The suspect is described as a young white man, about 5ft 10 ins tall, medium build and aged 16-20 years old with short dark hair. He was not wearing a top and had white knee-length shorts.

Anyone who was in the area at that time and remembers seeing the incident is urged to contact the investigating officer Pc Andrew Edwards at Southend CID on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Why is it that quite a few crimes, this one included take so long to get in the papers , Granted the incident only took place on the 12th June but now 10 days have elapsed and peoples memories soon fade . It would be far better to urge the Police to publicise the facts to the paper immediately and increase the chance of finding the culprit . Or is that too easy ?

The premises should have been using toughten glass or safety glass as common with most licensed premises today. Professor Sheppard carried out research years ago and since published the issue of serious glass injuries has disminished thanks to safety glass being made.

I hope the victim does not have any long term any life changing injuries and the premises will volunatry introduce the toughten glass.

Not really the type of pub that has a lot of bother, mainly because its so overpriced. A bit of CCTV would help ?

People often take their glasses over the road and sit on the seawall too. I hate to think how many glasses end up smashed on the pavement and on the beach, not good for anyone going barefoot for their day at the seaside. I don't suppose they are "allowed" to take their glasses over the road but if no-one is enforcing the rule it's a bit pointless and the glasses should definitely make way for plastic in my opinion.

And the moral of the story is don't serve young blokes with no shirt on beer. They obviously can't handle their ale.
