He was then left in the road while the group of men got into a taxi.

“I believe numerous people were in the area at the time the assault occurred and may have information. I would encourage you to please contact us if you have not yet spoken to an officer.
“While we are reviewing CCTV I would ask anyone with footage including dash cam to get in touch if it could assist with the investigation.
“I would also appeal to the taxi driver to contact us as well to help with our enquiries.”
