A 50 year old man's suffered a broken nose and fractures to an eye socket and cheek bone in an attack in a Luton pub.
Police are trying to find people who saw what happened in The Compasses in Farley Hill at around 11.30pm on Monday 1 July 2013.
The victim and his wife had spent the evening in the pub.
It is believed some kind of argument happened inside the pub which continued after the victim had been asked to leave the premises.
The victim required hospital treatment for his injuries.
The officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Constable Helen Howson, is keen to trace all those who were out that night at the pub and independent witnesses to the incident.
DC Howson said: “We know there were members of the public who were both inside and outside the pub.
"These people may have vital information relating to the background of this incident and information concerning the person responsible for the assault and I would urge them to contact me, in confidence.
“I am also particularly interested in tracing a woman who helped the victim while he was on the ground waiting for an ambulance to arrive at the scene.”
Anyone with information relating to this assault can contact DC Howson at Luton Police Station, in confidence, on 01582 394059, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
