A MAN was left with a fractured skull after being attacked in the town centre.

The 21-year-old victim was with a friend at the back of the Palace Theatre on Grove Street, around 2.30am on Sunday, March 23 when they were confronted by two men.

The men accused the pair of talking to their girlfriends and one of them then punched the victim in the face causing him to fall to the ground and remain unconscious for several minutes.

Both men ran off in the direction of Ipsley Street and the Warwick Arms and the victim, who suffered a fractured skull, was treated in hospital.

The attacker is black, 5ft 8in tall, stocky with short dark hair and was wearing a light purple, v-neck t-shirt with a water effect pattern on it and jeans.

He was believed to have been with a group of people before the assault.

PC Emma Morton said there was a suggestion the attacker could be from Birmingham and they were still gathering CCTV footage to identify him.

"This was an assault which has resulted in a significant injury and the victim has also experienced loss of hearing. It is important people come forward if they have any information at all that could help our investigation."

Witnesses or anyone with any details should contact PC Morton at Redditch Police Station on 101, quoting incident reference 86-S-230314, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
