Nottinghamshire Police have released images of the brutal injuries a 20-year-old man sustained in a robbery in Pleasley, Nottinghamshire.
Christian Lecoutier suffered a fractured eye socket and a fractured skull during the attack.
It happened at around 4.30pm on Friday 28th September, this year. Mr Lecoutier had just got off a bus in Pleasley Hill.
Two men attacked from behind and stole his rucksack which contained his iPhone and iPad.
Police are keen to speak to the two men, one in black and the other in white, seen walking behind Mr Lecoutier as he walked past a car garage at the top of Chesterfield Road North in Mansfield, shortly before the attack.
