He attacked a 23-year-old man outside the Butchers Arms in Marsh Lane, near Eckington, at around 1am yesterday.

The victim was taken to Chesterfield and District Hospital for treatment and was released later that morning.

Police cordoned off an area outside the pub looking for forensic evidence to help them track down the attacker, who ran off in the direction of Dronfield afterwards.

He was white, around 5ft 11ins tall, of a large build, with short black hair and was wearing a black jacket.

Witnesses or anyone who saw anything suspicious or knows who was responsible should call Derbyshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 55511.
