Caveman interrupts attack on man

December 6, 2012, 3:59 pm

A caveman interrupted an attack on a man after a night out in a busy town centre.

Disturbing CCTV footage shows the victim being pushed to the ground before his attacker reigns blows on his face and continues to kick him in the head.

The 31-year-old man from Lye had been drinking in The Mitre Inn on Lower High Street in Stourbridge on Saturday 27 October where a fancy dress party was taking place.

As he came out of the pub, just after 1.30am, he was followed into Stourbridge High Street – CCTV cameras capture the moment he is attacked.

The man was knocked unconscious in the attack and sustained injuries to his head and nose.

Officers investigating the assault have released the moving footage in a bid to help trace his attacker.

Detective Constable, John Horrobin, from the major investigation team in Dudley, said: “In the footage you will see a couple of people in fancy dress costume.

“There had been a fancy dress party at the Mitre Inn on that night and we are appealing to anyone that may have seen the victim on the night to come forward.

“If you saw the assault we would also like to speak to you – ultimately we are hoping that someone will recognise the attacker and will come forward with a name.

“The victim has little recollection of the attack and thankfully he will make a full recovery.”

If anyone can help with the investigation they are urged to contact DC Horrobin by calling West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
