PC Megan Offiler, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a horrible assault that left a man who was simply trying to calm down a situation with a serious facial injuries.

“We know this incident happened as the victim was leaving Wollaton Park and coming out onto the main road – at a time when an event being held there was coming to an end.

“As a result, this area would’ve been very busy at the time, so there will have been people who saw this assault happen with their own eyes.

“It is extremely important that these witnesses come forward, as any information they have could help us track down the man responsible for this assault.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 537 of 27 May 2023, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
