Detective Inspector Hannah Whitehouse said: âWe understand the man left a club shortly before he got involved in a confrontation with another man on the street.
âOur first surveys show that there were a lot of people in the area and that many were filming what had happened on their phones.
“I need these people to contact me because they may have clearly filmed the offender.
“Likewise, I would ask taxi drivers or other motorists who were at the scene to check the dash cam footage to see if they recorded the fight or the offender running away.”
