Police investigating the stabbing of a Wolverhampton doorman are keen to identify someone as part of their investigation.
Detective Inspector Ian Iliffe, leading the inquiry, said:
We know that there was a black man with a fair complexion, aged in his mid-30s, who was around at the time of the attack. He was wearing a long-sleeved dark coloured top and possibly a dark coloured hat and I believe he could have crucial information about what happened. Officers were met with a highly-charged scene when they arrived in the early hours of this morning and there were a large number of people gathered at the venue. It’s important we speak to as many of these individuals as possible if we are to ensure the person responsible is swiftly arrested.
Police are examining forensic evidence and CCTV footage at the scene today and are keen to talk to witnesses.

A Coventry man has been jailed for 12 years after a stabbing in a nightclub.
The attack happened at Bar S7ven Nightclub in Coventry city centre on Monday 4 June last year after a disagreement between the 25-year-old victim and another man who was friends with Maher.
The court heard that the victim became involved in a heated argument with the man and 25-year-old Maher then stepped in and stabbed him in the stomach with the 12"-18" long blade.
After the attack he managed to run off and collapsed near to a local supermarket where he was found by paramedics with his intestines exposed. He was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries and has now made a full recovery.
A major investigation was launched and Maher later handed himself in to Willenhall Police Station and was arrested and charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm - but he denied carrying out the attack.
However, after the five-day trial he was found guilty by a jury at Birmingham Crown Court and jailed on Friday 22 November.
