West End: Police Release CCTV Images After Man Assaulted Outside Pub

Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to after a 32-year-old was left with a fractured eye-socket outside a pub on High Street, West End.

It happened just after midnight on Saturday, July 11 outside the West End Brewery.

Police say the victim started speaking to a group of three men and the discussion became heated. The men became confrontational and a member of staff from the pub asked the group to leave and they moved on.

The victim was sat on the wall facing the pub entrance near to the main door when one of the men ran towards him and hit him in the back of the head. The victim then fell forward off the wall and hit his face on a concrete step.
