Police say the victim was attacked in Station Road outside Taunton Dry Cleaning about 4am on Sunday 19th October, after getting into a scuffle with a group of two men and one women. 

He was with two other men at the time. 

But police say that after  chasing one of the victim's group towards the railway station, the two men returned to the scene of the original scuffle where they found the 19 year old and attacked him.

During the first scuffle, one of the suspects removed his white jacket to reveal a pink t-shirt, which he is also pictured in.
