Only in Leeds would someone have enough balls
Police are attempting to trace a group of men – one of them dressed in a costume resembling a “giant penis” – after a serious attack in Leeds city centre.
The victim was attacked on the junction between Albion Street and Boar Lane by a suspect who was apart of a group of ten other men. One of the men was wearing a rather distinctive fancy dress penis costume and police are now appealing for witnesses.
The victim, a 26-year-old man, underwent an operation after he suffered a shattered shin bone, cracked knee and torn ligaments. Other surgery is required.
Detective Constable Gaynor Burt, of Leeds District CID, said: “The victim was very badly injured in this attack and will still require further surgery. While the nature of costume worn by one of the group might be amusing to some, we are hoping that mentioning it will jog someone’s memory and assist in tracing those responsible for what was serious assault that has left the victim with long-term consequences.”
“We have been been making extensive enquiries to identify those involved and would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information that could assist in tracing the group involved, who were possibly a stag party or similar. The costume worn by one of the group is very distinctive and we think anyone who encountered them during the evening would recall it.”
