Police have released CCTV images of two suspected attackers after a man was assaulted in Birmingham city centre leaving him with head injuries.
The 26-year-old was with his girlfriend outside a bar at the junction of Broad Street and Gas Street just after 3.30am on the morning of Thursday, August 7, when a man picked a fight with him.
A second person joined in and struck him several times with a metal bar. The pair continued their attack, joined by a further two men, eventually leaving in a small dark-coloured car which was parked at the lower end of Gas Street.
The victim was left with severe bruising to his face and several cuts which required stitches.
