Police have released the CCTV images of a fight in Reading in which a 20-year-old man was assaulted.

The attack is alleged to have happened near the Burger King in St Mary's Butts sometime between 2.45am and 3am on Sunday 31 July 2011.

The 20-year-old man was with a friend when he got involved in argument with a group of around 10-15 men.

He was punched and kicked and had to be treated for a perforated eardrum, which requires more surgery.

Officers have told Heart the men are believed to be of South East Asian origin, but don't have any other descriptions of them.

The CCTV images show a number of people who were in the area at the time and may be able to help with the investigation.

PC Sunny Virdee, investigating, said:

“We’re keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has any other information which may assist us.

"We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who recognises the people in the images, as we believe the people pictured may be able to help with our enquiries.”
