POLICE have released CCTV footage of a group attacking a man in Leeds as they continue to appeal for information.

The main victim, a 36-year-old man, suffered a broken jaw in the incident that occurred in Cartmell Drive, Halton Moor.

He had to have surgery to have his jaw wired due to the seriousness of the injury.

His friend, a 33-year-old man, received cuts and bruises during the attack, and his partner, a 34-year-old woman, was also assaulted during the incident.

Damage was also caused to a car parked outside the address. A folding chair was used to smash the back windscreen and dents to the bodywork were caused by kicks.

The two male victims had been in the nearby Halton Moor Social Club shortly before the assault, which took place shortly after 1am on Sunday, October 17.

While the footage is not clear enough to identify the suspects’ faces it is hoped someone will recognise them from their general appearance and clothing. It is believed they will be local to the area.

Anyone with any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13210530628 or online via westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat Information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
