Police are looking for a good Samaritan who helped a man who'd been attacked in Norwich.

Detectives investigating a serious assault in Norwich are trying to trace a witness who may have information about the attack.

Police were called to Prince of Wales Road on Saturday 27 April 2013 at about 11.50pm following reports of a fight.

When officers arrived on scene a man was found unconscious on the pavement and taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious head injuries. The 31-year-old was transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge where he is now recovering.

A 19-year-old man from the North Walsham area was arrested at the scene on suspicion of affray and assault. He was questioned by detectives at Aylsham Police Investigation Centre and remains on conditional bail while enquiries continue.

Officers want to speak to a man who helped the victim at the time of the assault. He is described as white, of stocky build with dark hair in a quiff and was wearing dark trousers, a grey shirt, a black skinny tie and an earring. He appeared to have had his hand stamped in a nightclub.

The witness, or anyone else with information about this assault, should contact DC Steve Hunt at Norwich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
