A “ONE punch” offender, who assaulted a person in Civic in March, has since got away with it… for now.

Police are pushing to find more evidence to identify him and have released a video of the alleged offender.

At about 2.30am on Sunday, March 24, police went to Verity Lane near London Circuit following reports of a “one punch” assault and subsequent fight between numerous people.

The victim suffered a large cut to the side of his head as a result of the assault.

The alleged offender is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 180cm (5’11”) tall, with an athletic build and short brown hair. He was wearing a light grey top, blue jeans and white sneakers at the time of the assault.

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website using reference number 6377325.
