The family of a man from County Durham, who had his ear bitten off in an attack, is offering a £2,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the man responsible.
It has been a traumatic 8 months for 23-year-old Marco Oswald, from Ferryhill. He had part of his ear bitten off last May, when he stopped for food on Claypath Bank at the end of a night out in Durham. At the time, police described the attack as unprovoked and barbaric.
Marco has had months of hospital visits and has just spent £10,000 on reconstructive surgery. He says there is more than a financial cost and physical scarring to deal with.
The man who did it has yet to be caught.
Marco says he wants to see his attacker behind bars so he can put the experience behind him.
