Police are appealing for public assistance after a man had his jaw fractured in an assault in Byron Bay last week.

About 3.30am on Sunday October 21, a 20-year-old man was approached by another man and a woman while walking along Jonson Street, near Lawson Street.

Police say the man spoke to the 20-year-old and pushed him in the chest. A second man then approached and punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.

The trio then fled the scene, and the injured man took refuge at a friend’s house before going to Byron Bay Hospital for treatment.

As a result of the incident, the 20-year-old man sustained a fractured jaw.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command are investigating the incident and would like to speak to a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 20-years-old, approximately 178cm tall, with a slim build, and was wearing jeans, a shirt, and a red-and-blue baseball cap worn backwards at the time.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au.
