Police call for help in assault case

Appeal to trace thugs who beat defenceless man in Birmingham.

West Midlands Police are asking for help to identify these men who savagely assaulted a defenceless man as he cowered on the floor on Corporation Street in Birmingham city centre on Sunday (28th June) at around 6pm.

The 40-year-old man was robbed of his wallet and keys, and left with nasty head injuries. He managed to get home but has been taken to hospital for treatment to a badly bruised eye and possible fractures after one of the offenders brutally stamped on his head.

The shocking footage shows several people witnessing and filming the incident and police have urged them to get in touch as soon as possible so that hose involved can be identified.

Detective Inspector Gemma Currie said: “We’re horrified at the violence used towards this man who simply curled himself into a ball to escape the onslaught.

“Footage shows several people in the area who may have footage or information which could assist and there will be many more who recognise them.

“This could have ended far worse than it has and we would urge you to do the right thing and contact us.”
