Police are appealing for information after a robbery in Blackpool last month, in which a man lost part of his ear.
It happened on Claremont Road on Saturday 5 May.
Two men approached the victim to ask for a cigarette lighter, before grabbing his phone.
The victim tried to defend himself and get his phone back but he was attacked by a second man who bit his left ear.
This is clearly a nasty attack which has caused the victim significant injury and we need to find those responsible.
The first man is white, in his mid-20s, with short dark hair, who was wearing a pair of shorts.
The second offender is believed to be a white man, in his late teens to early twenties, who was wearing a blue jacket.
