Man head-butted and threatened in Sheffield pub assault

A man has been head-butted and threatened in a Sheffield pub in April.

At around around 8.25 pm on 15 April at the Francis Newton pub on Clarkehouse Road, it is alleged that a man committed the assault and then fled the scene before police arrived.

It is also reported that the man threatened to throw a chair at the victim in a brutal attack.

Police did arrive at the scene afterwards and an investigation has since been launched.

The Francis Newton in Broomfield was refurbished by JD Wetherspoon in 2010.

On Google Maps, The Francis Newton is described as a ‘Family-friendly chain pub with a menu of classic global favourites and real ales, plus TV sports’.

South Yorkshire Police have urged witnesses to come forwards with information from the assault by calling 101, quoting incident number 990 of 15 April.

The Francis Newton refused to comment on the matter.
