A YOUNG man suffered serious injuries to his face in a mystery late-night attack in Doncaster town centre.
Police are appealing for information and for witnesses to come forward following the alleged assault on the Conisbrough man in St Sepulchre gate before Christmas.

“As a result of the incident the 21-year-old man sustained serious facial injuries,” said a police spokesman.
Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and believes they may have seen the victim or may have witnessed this incident to come forward.
