Police are appealing for help from the public to solve a crime which left a man in hospital with serious injuries.

Officers say the victim was attacked outside a pub in Sheffield.

The 39-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries following the incident in Chapeltown in September, and is now recovering at home following his ordeal.

He had been in The Royal Oak pub in Station Road, Chapeltown.

Officers believe he was involved in an altercation outside the pub.

It is believed he was attacked as he left the scene and made his way towards The Wagon and Horses pub.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said officers have arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of assault.

He has since been bailed while police continue their investigation.

Anyone with any information about the attack - which happened at around 1.30am on Saturday, September 13 - is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 461 of September 13.

Alternatively witnesses can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
