A MAN suffered a painful injury to his nose during an unprovoked attack in Wheatley, Doncaster.
The attacker forced his finger up the victim’s nostril and he needed to go to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
Police have appealed for witnesses to the alleged assault that happened on Tuesday January 11 around 8.15pm.
A 32-year-old man was walking with a friend along Jubilee Road towards the junction with Beckett Road when he was approached by two other men who began arguing with him.
One of the men pushed him against a wall and forced his finger into the man’s nostril causing injury, which required hospital treatment.
The suspects then ran down Beckett Road towards the town centre.
The suspect is described as an Afro-Caribbean man in his early 20s who was around 5ft 10ins and stocky.
He was clean-shaven but possibly had a thin moustache and was wearing blue jeans and a dark hooded top.
The attacker is believed to be local to the area and has previously been seen walking two bulldog-type dogs.
The man with him is described as white in his mid 20s.
He was around 5ft 7ins and stocky.
A police spokesman said: “This seems to be an unprovoked attack.
“We are keen to hear from anybody who may know the suspect or have information that could help.”
