A man has suffered life-threatening injuries after being hit over the head with a brick during a row in a Birmingham street.
The victim, 40, is believed to have been walking to his local shops along Stud Lane, Stechford, when he became involved in an altercation with another man at midday on Saturday.
A witness told police how his attacker "picked up a brick before striking him over the head" and leaving him unconscious in the street.
The victim has been placed in an induced coma in hospital while doctors assess his head injury.
Police said it was a "vicious attack on a local family man", describing it as "an outrageous response to a verbal spat in the street".
The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s with mousy brown hair, and was wearing a light blue padded jacket, jeans and trainers.
