On Sunday May 4, a 34-year-old man was approached by a group of people in Daisy Hill.

One of the men asked the victim for a cigarette and then searched him, taking his medication and bank card.

The man gave a false number and tried to escape, but he was quickly caught and assaulted.

He was taken to hospital with facial injuries and treated for concussion.

One of the men in the group is described as white and believed to be in his early 20s.

Detective Constable Andy Clayton, of Huddersfield CID, said:

"This was a vicious and totally unprovoked assault on an innocent member of the public.
