Scarborough Man Left with Swollen Eye After Assault

North Yorkshire Police are seeking help to find a man who assaulted another man after he intervened when he believed the man was acting suspiciously towards two young girls in Eastfield, near Scarborough. The incident occurred at 2:40am on December 27, and the victim was left with a swollen eye but did not require hospital treatment.
