The 18-year-old victim was attacked on the busy Broad Street area of Birmingham at 2.30am in the early hours of Friday June 6.

The clubber was left with a fractured skull and a bleed on his brain.

West Midlands Police yesterday released footage of the suspect captured on CCTV moments after the attack.

Detective Constable Antony Hammerton said: “This was an unprovoked attack leaving an 18-year-old lad with serious injuries requiring medication and rendering him unable to work.

“I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the attack or who can identify the man in the footage.

“The attacker is described as a white man, around 5ft 10ins tall and with a skinny build. He had floppy, curtain-style hair and was wearing a black jacket with a white top underneath.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Hammerton on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
