Witnesses sought for unprovoked Dean Street assault

ALBURY police are appealing for witnesses to an unprovoked assualt in Dean Street last weekend.

Inspector Anthony Moodie said an Albury man, 20, was walking along Dean Street near David Street between 1am and 2am when he was approached by another person and punched to the head.
