Police are appealing for help identifying two men after a man was left with head and facial injuries in a “violent and unprovoked” attack.

Officers were called at 2.30am on August 1 to Glebe Road to reports of a man having been attacked.

The 37-year-old victim was treated in hospital following the serious assault and has since been discharged.

Officers have released two images of men they wish to speak to regarding the attack.

Investigating officer DC Larissa Nightingale, said: “ This was a violent and unprovoked attack. I am appealing to anyone who recognises the men in these images to contact police and assist our investigation. Any information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.”
