Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an assault in Warrington.
A 41-year-old man, from Widnes, was attacked at Abba taxi rank on Crown Street in Bewsey and Whitecross.
He had been waiting in a queue when an altercation occurred with a group of men and women who he believed had been pushing in.
One of the men punched him a number of times causing him to fall to the floor.
He was then assaulted again.
The victim attended to Warrington Hospital with serious injuries to his leg and face and has since been released.
