Police have released images they describe as 'sickening' showing a man being knocked unconscious and repeatedly kicked on a street in Birmingham.
The man was walking home along Bordesley Green Road after celebrating a birthday party in the early hours of 15 December 2013 when he was attacked.
West Midlands Police are appealing for anyone with information about the attack to contact them.
