WEST Yorkshire Police has launched an investigation after two homosexual men were attacked in Huddersfield.

The incident took place at around 2.30am on July 5 on King Street.

The two men, aged 34 and 36, were walking along King Street when they were approached by two men and two women. One of the men struck out at the 34-year-old as they passed one another - knocking him unconscious.

The 36-year-old man was also assaulted as he tried to come to the aid of his friend, receiving minor injuries in the process.

CCTV footage revealed that the group then left the scene and went to St George’s Square where they tried to book a taxi. They left the area after being unable to do so.

It is thought that the suspect, who is white, in his 20s and has short brown hair, had been in the Tokyo bar that night.

He was wearing a black low-cut V-neck t-shirt, blue jeans and trainers with white tips.

The 34-year-old man knocked unconscious is still in hospital receiving treatment to a serious head injury.

Anyone who witnessed this incident is urged to contact Pc Lee Brooke on 01484 436 642, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
