POLICE have renewed an appeal in the hunt for a Prudhoe man wanted for questioning about a brutal glass attack that took place over three weeks ago.
A 42-year-old man required extensive surgery after being struck by a glass in the car park of the West Wylam Inn on Saturday, July 27.
He was rushed to the Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary after suffering serious injuries to his throat, face and arm which may leave him permanently scarred.
Northumbria Police are continuing to search for Stephen Waters from Prudhoe as he may have information that can help with their investigation.
The 37-year-old, also known as Stephen McGlasson, has a number of distinguishing tattoos; 'BUSTER' on one arm, 'BELLA' on his neck and a tribal tattoo on his right arm.
Det. Sgt Matt Sykes, said: "The victim in this assault suffered very serious injuries that required extensive surgery and will potentially leave him permanently scarred. We're continuing to ask for the public's help in locating Stephen Waters. If anyone has any information about his whereabouts we'd urge them to contact police.
"No matter how insignificant people think the information may be it could lead us to tracing him.
"We will treat any information in the strictest of confidence or it can be reported to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
