Man punched outside Leeds station is left with broken nose

A 28-year old man was punched while he waited for a taxi outside Leeds train station in an unprovoked attack.

Police say the incident took place just before 5am on Sunday, July 10. The victim was waiting with a group of friends for a taxi when he was approached by a group of men who asked if they could push in front of them to get a taxi to Preston. When the victim refused he was punched in the face by one of the men in the group.

The victim, who required hospital treatment as a result of the assault, suffered a broken nose, bruising and damage to his teeth.

“This was completely unprovoked and violent behaviour which is totally unacceptable. The victim’s attacker was extremely aggressive and was unwilling to wait his turn in the taxi queue which was only small with a wait of around ten minutes. It’s vital we trace the person responsible."
