Several people got in touch with Deeside.com just after 7pm on Saturday evening to say there was a large police presence near the Custom House pub. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

One person told us they were stopped by police officers and asked: “if we had seen a white male wanted in connection with serious assault”. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A police helicopter was seen overhead, it appeared to be focusing on the High Street area of Connah’s Quay for around 20 minutes. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A police dog unit was also spotted around Breezehill as a search for a male suspect continued. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There were also reports of a road traffic collision on the junction of Mold Road and High Street, it is thought this may in some way be connected to the incident. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Following the serious assault, a police forensics van was seen on the car park of the Custom House which had been cleared of customers and closed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The pub remained shut for the rest of the evening. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
