PC Rachel Wakefield, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a violent and unprovoked attack on a young man who was fortunate not to sustain far more serious injuries. This kind of violence is utterly unacceptable and we are doing all we can to track down the person responsible.

“We are releasing this CCTV image in the hope that somebody may recognise a man we would like to speak with in connection with this assault. His face is not clearly visible, but his outfit is fairly distinctive. If you know who he is then please get in contact with us as soon as possible by calling 101 and quoting incident 109 of 26 September.”
