Police are trying to trace a man after an assault in a bar in Leeds.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday 3 June at the Stone Roses bar under the railway arches on Lower Briggate in Leeds.

A 19-year-old man from Beeston, was attacked while he was in the bars toilets. He was attacked by an unknown man and punched in the face several times before he was kneed and doubled over. He has suffered significant facial injuries and damage to his nose, eye socket and cheek, a cut lip and bruising and swelling to his head.

Unprovoked violent behaviour like this will not be tolerated – we work closely with the bars supervisors and staff to enable revelers have an enjoyable night without fear of this kind of vicious attack.

The male has been described as white, aged 23-25 years, approximately 5ft8-5ft9, stocky build, with a chubby face, light brown short hair, green/blue eyes. He also had a scar either on forehead or by his eye. He wore a distinctive black and bright yellow t-shirt with the words “VENUM” printed on with a snakes head.

I’d urge anyone who recognises the man featured in the CCTV or has any information about the attack to come forward and assist police in this investigation.
