Three men with covered faces and samurai swords demanded money from a pub landlord.
It happened at the White Swan pub in Mansbridge, Southampton, at around 11.15pm on Sunday, June 10.
One man pursued the landlord and demanded he hand over takings from the safe.
The landlord received an injury to his face which required treatment at Southampton General Hospital.
The offenders then left the premises and fled the scene. Three other members of staff were in the pub at the time but managed to flee to safety in another part of the building.
