A MAN was left with a broken jaw following an attack in Kidderminster.

The incident happened shortly after the 22-year-old victim has left Tribe nightclub in Green Street with two friends between 2.15am and 2.30am on Sunday, May 18.

They walked up New Road and were cutting across the Dunelm Mill car park on to Oxford Street when they encountered a group of four males all thought to be in their late teens. Two of them were white, one black and the other was of mixed race.

The victim was punched in the face after being confronted by the youths and tried to walk away.

They were then followed along Oxford Street in the direction of the ring road before the attacker and the group he was with left the scene via steps which lead to the back of the Wyre Forest Glades Leisure Centre in Bromsgrove Street.

The victim later required an operation in hospital for a broken jaw.

Det con Natalie Vaux, from Kidderminster CID, said: “The victim and his friends were trying to avoid a confrontation when he was subjected to an unprovoked attack which left him with a serious injury. If anyone knows who was involved they should not hesitate to come forward with that information.

“We are gathering CCTV footage in the vicinity as part of our investigation and want to hear from anyone who saw this group of youths there that night or can help us to identify them."

Anyone with information should call detectives at Kidderminster CID on 101, quoting incident reference 106-S-190514, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
