Man dies after being assaulted in Southampton pub

A man has died after being assaulted in a pub in Southampton, and police are now appealing for anyone who was in the pub at the time to contact them.

Perry Cardy, 52, from Thornhill Park Road was attacked in the Bittern Pub at around 9.50pm on Friday (19 April).

He was taken to hospital suffering from serious head injuries, but died on Sunday morning (22 April).

Two men aged 27 and 39 have been arrested in connection with the incident.

Hampshire Police are now appealing for anyone who saw the incident who has not yet spoken to police or has any information about what happened to call 101 quoting Operation Bonham.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who has footage from their mobile phones of the assault.

Detective Inspector Lee Macarthur from the Major Crime team said:

"We want to hear from you if you were in the Bittern Public House, Thornhill, Southampton on the evening of Friday, April 19? 

"You can either call us on 101 or use the link below to directly submit information to the investigation team. 

"Any information you have may be relevant, no matter how insignificant it may appear to be.
