We have issued CCTV images of two males we believe may be able to assist enquiries into a serious assault in Liverpool city centre.
It was reported a fight started between two groups of males on Wood Street at about 12.30am on Saturday, 21 August.
During the altercation, one man attempted to calm the situation but was punched to the face by two males. He fell to the floor where he was then kicked to the head by one of the offenders.
He was treated in hospital for serious leg and head injuries, and is now recovering at home.
