A MAN from Droitwich Spa suffered a broken jaw and cheekbone during an assault in Worcester.
Police are appealing for information following the incident in a pub car park in the Nunnery area of the city.
The town man was left with a broken jaw and cheekbone after being punched and kicked in the attack, which happened at around 8.30pm on Wednesday, October 3.
The victim, a 19-year-old man, was walking through the car park at the Oak Apple pub on Spetchley Road when he was assaulted by two men, who then left the scene in a small white van.
PC Robert Seewoosaha is investigating the incident. He said: "This was an unprovoked and vicious attack on a young man, who needed surgery to insert metal plates where his cheekbone was broken.
"The two men involved in the assault are both described as white with one being around 6ft tall, of a very stocky build, with dark brown hair and a beard, while the other man is described as being about 5ft 10ins tall and of a medium build.
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the pub on the night in question and remembers seeing the men described above, or knows who they might be from the description given, to get in touch."
Anyone with information about this incident can call PC Seewoosaha on 0300 333 3000, quoting incident number 263S 091012, or can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
