Pizza delivery attack 'completely unprovoked'

Following the release of CCTV images of a man West Midlands Police would like to speak to in connection with an attack on a pizza deliver driver in December last year, a detective has said there was 'no excuse' for the violence used.

Detective Constable Carmel Rees, from Force CID, said:

This was a completely unprovoked attack against a man simply carrying out his job in the city centre... The offender may have been confused about whether or not the vehicle was a taxi but that is absolutely no excuse for this violent attack which happened after the driver simply asked him to get out of the vehicle... I would now ask anyone who recognises the man in the image to contact us as soon as possible."
