Police in Blackpool are appealing for information after a 24-year-old woman in Blackpool was spat on and injured with a lit cigarette.
They are keen to speak to the man, pictured, in connection with the attack and are urging anyone with information to contact them on 101.
The woman had been out with friends when an argument started with a group of men nearby.
One of the men approached the woman and spat on her, before pushing a lit cigarette towards her face and damaging her eye. The men then ran away.
She was taken to hospital and treated for a damaged cornea and impaired vision.
"This was a cowardly and despicable assault which has left a woman requiring hospital treatment.
"The nature of the attack was particularly shameful and we want to find the person responsible.
"If you recognise the man pictured, please contact police immediately."
