OFFICERS investigating an assault in Cheltenham have released a CCTV image in the hope that someone can identify the offender.

The incident left, which took place at around 1.45pm on Sunday, October 1, left a 24-year-old man with a fractured cheekbone causing loss of sensation to the left hand side of his face.

Police would like to identify a man caught on CCTV.

He is described as a white male with short hair who was wearing jeans, a t-shirt and trainers.

He may have spoken with a Birmingham accent.

The offender and three males left the nightclub before standing on the Promenade; this is when the victim and his two friends walked past.

It’s at this point when a conversation started between the two groups, the interaction is believed to have become heated and the victim was punched from behind.

If anyone recognise the male from the CCTV please call police on 101 or email quoting incident number 51 of October 1.
