Harpreet Singh is suspected of attacking a 29-year-old man with a cricket bat a year ago today.

The victim suffered a fractured cheekbone and three broken ribs.

Singh, who is an illegal immigrant and who has no fixed address, is believed to travel around looking cash-in-hand for work.

As well as Birmingham, he has links to Bedford and Luton.
