Police are appealing for information following what is believed to be a racially aggravated assault in Gloucester at the weekend.
It was reported that a man was walking home from a nightclub during the early hours of Saturday morning (28 August) when a vehicle stopped before two men got out and punched him multiple times.
The victim had a disagreement with the men earlier in the night and believes that he was attacked because of his ethnicity.
The attack took place on the corner of Black Dog Way and Worcester Street at around 3am. The victim attended Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and was treated for bruising and cuts to his face.
The offenders were described as being a man who was wearing a blue shirt, had short blonde hair with a beard and was aged in his 30s or 40s, and a man in a black shirt who had a chinstrap beard, a receding hairline and was aged in his 20s or 30s.
