A 23-year-old man was hospitalised with a serious head injury after a man stamped on his head several times in Nottingham city centre.
Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.
It happened at around 2.30am on 12 March on Cranbrook Street.
The intention of releasing this footage is to show the very violent nature of this unprovoked assault in hopes of appealing to someone’s conscious.
As you can see, one of the men repeatedly stamps on the victim’s head, a man who we believe is a stranger to him.
With such ferocious blows aimed at his head, this could easily have been a murder inquiry.
If you recognise anyone in this footage please give a call on 101.

Jewish voters have deserted Labour in the wake of the anti-Semitism row, John Mann MP has said.
Mr Mann, who confronted Ken Livingstone over comments he made about Hitler, said Labour should have been enjoying a "landslide" victory.
He told the BBC: "It is clear that the Jewish vote, which for generations in families has been Labour, has gone against Labour tonight. We have seen that in Bury, we have seen it in Glasgow, I think we will see it tomorrow in parts of London.
