He did not get a proper look at who attacked him but he thinks it was two white men in their 20s.

The attack happened at around 1.30am on Saturday, November 30.

Police want to hear from witnesses, or anyone who has dashcam footage and was driving in the area at the time.

You can contact the officer in the case, Detective Staff Investigator Amy Bavester on 101, quoting reference 19*643335.
