A man says he was “scarred for life” after being glassed in an unprovoked attack in Cirencester.

Tim Unwin was assaulted outside the Barn Theatre in Beeches Road last October.

The 24-year-old was reportedly hit over the head with a Stein glass, taken from a nearby beer festival, which left him with deep cuts to his forehead, face and back.

Three months on from the attack, Tim says he has been “scarred for life” and now suffers from anxiety.

This was a completely unprovoked and callous attack on me at the end of what was a good night out with friends.

I have injuries on my face and back that have scarred me for life and they will be an everlasting reminder of this incident, of which I am now suffering with anxiety as a result of this mindless attack.

I really hope we can find the person responsible for this so that I can receive a little bit of closure.

– Tim Unwin, victim

Gloucestershire Police believe Tim’s attacker had been at an Oktoberfest event earlier in the evening, and that a number of people may have witnessed what happened.

They have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to and have urged anyone who saw the attack to come forward.
