Family beg for justice as son, 23, suffers cardiac arrest and dies after being attacked by group of men

July 6, 2021

THE heartbroken family of a 23-year-old man who died after a brutal attack have begged for justice.

Duncan Browne collapsed on the ground outside the City Buffet restaurant in Liverpool after being punched by three thugs.

He suffered a cardiac arrest during the assault in the early hours of Sunday and passed away yesterday in hospital.

His family have now paid tribute to Duncan and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

They said in a statement: "We are asking for anyone who was in the vicinity of the taxi rank on Hanover Street around this time who may have seen anything whatsoever that can help our family get justice for our Duncan to inform the police.

“Duncan was a hard-working boy from a loving and compassionate family who had ambitions to be a firefighter to serve his community.

“If anyone knows anything that can help identify the cowards who took Duncan's life, please do the right and just thing and let the police know.”

Police say the suspects fled the scene in a blue and pink Hackney cab.

A 37-year-old man arrested on suspicion of Section 18 assault has now been further arrested on suspicion of murder.

Cops are asking for any taxi drivers at the Hackney cab rank on Hanover Street or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

Merseyside Police said: "A team of detectives are working round the clock conducting enquiries to trace the offenders, and anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is urged to contact police.

"Anyone who can assist the investigation is asked to DM @MerPolCC or message Merseyside Police Contact Centre on Facebook, quoting reference 21000465224."
