3:37pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
Police have today released CCTV images of two men they want to speak to in connection with alleged assaults.
The incidents happened in Halifax town centre but it is believed the men may have links to Wilsden, Haworth and Keighley.
On Sunday, June 30, a 41-year-old man was attacked outside a fast food restaurant in Old Market at around 5.45am.
He received facial injuries and was knocked unconscious.
The assailants then turned on a Good Samaritan, a 59-year-old man, who had tried to help the victim. He too was attacked and required stitches for a head wound.
Both suspects are white and believed to be in their mid to late twenties. One is described as about 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall, well built, with shaven dark brown hair.
He was wearing dark trousers and dark shoes and had tattoos down both arms.
The other is about 5ft 1ins to 5ft 5 ins tall and of medium build. He has short fair hair and was wearing a light-coloured top.
A police spokesman said: “Both men are known to have left the scene in a taxi which picked up two other men and travelled to Wilsden, Haworth and Keighley.”
Anyone who recognises the two men pictured is asked to contact PC Sarah-Jane Brown at Halifax Police on the 101 non-emergency number or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
