Pensioners attacked with pool cue

Two 77-year-old men were assaulted inside the Volunteer pub, in Midland Road, Wellingborough on New Year’s Day.

At around 2pm on Sunday, 1 January, two men entered the pub and began playing on the pool table. When they were questioned about appropriate use of the table, one of the men broke a pool cue in half and attacked the two victims.

One of the victims suffered a cut to his forehead and a black eye. Both victims were left shaken following the attack.

Both men then ran from the pub, with the offender still holding on to the pool cue. He was seen heading up Victoria Street towards Cannon Street.

The offender is described as white, around 30 years old, 6ft 3ins tall and of slim build. He had a goatee beard and short dark hair that was spiked at the front.

He was wearing a dark grey lumberjack style coat with brown shoulder pads. He ran from the scene carrying half a pool cue.

The second man, who entered with the offender, is described as white, around 30 years of age, about 5ft 9ins tall and of average build.

Anyone with information can contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
