A man suffered facial injuries in an unprovoked attack as he was on a night out with a friend outside a Solihull bar.

The pair - one aged 27 and another 28 - had just left the Apres bar on Poplar Road in the early hours of July 13 when they were approached by the two men.

One of the men lunged at them and hit the victim knocking him unconscious.

Detectives have trawled CCTV and released images of suspects wanted in connection with the assault.

Officers are appealing to witnesses to come forward with any information about the incident.

DC Claire Phillips, from the West Midlands Police Major Investigation Unit, said: “The two men were out enjoying a social evening when they were unexpectedly attacked.

“The man who was assaulted sustained facial injuries and he required hospital treatment, but fortunately he continues to make a full recovery.

“I am appealing to anyone who knows who these men are to call me”

Anyone with information is urged to call the CID on 024 76 539130. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
