Man's jaw broken in unprovoked attack outside Coventry pub

A man’s jaw was broken in an unprovoked assault outside a Coventry pub.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the ‘unprovoked attack’ outside the Town Crier pub in Corporation Street, Coventry, that left a 25-year-old man with the severe injury on September 20.

They have also released these images of four men they want to question in connection with the incident.

A West Midlands Police statement reads: “A man was walking past the front of the pub at 12.35am, when he was punched in the face by an unknown attacker.

“The victim was knocked to the ground unconscious and sustained injuries that included having his jaw so badly broken he needed an operation to repair it.

“Just before the attack took place, the suspect was believed to be with a group of men who were refused service by staff and asked to leave the pub because of their drunkenness and bad behaviour.

“He was described as a white man with dark hair wearing a dark waist length jacket; his two associates were wearing lighter coloured jumpers.

“Anyone with information or who recognises the people in these images should call police on 101 giving reference 20CV/208398L/17 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
