A man was rushed to hospital with a broken jaw last Sunday after a vicious assault in Glastonbury.
Police are now appealing to the public for information on this unprovoked attack.
At around 2am on Sunday (February 10) the man was walking down Glastonbury High Street and turned into Northload Street.
As he reached St John's car park he heard people shouting abuse. When he turned around to respond, one of three men struck him in the face.
The victim was rushed to hospital with a broken jaw.
Officers now wish to speak to two people in connection with the assault.
The first is a man who is described as white, with mousey coloured hair, in his 20s, around 5ft 9inches tall and of a trim build. He was also clean shaven.
Police would also like to speak to a woman who may be a potential witness. She is described as white, around 20 years-old, of a medium height and slim build.
She had dark straight hair down to her shoulders and wore a dark dress with circular cuts out of the material at the waist on both sides that exposed her skin. She was not wearing a coat.
A police spokesman said: "Shortly before the incident the victim spoke to the woman who was sat on the wall outside of the "Who'd a thought it" Pub in Northload Street. She was on her phone stating she was cold and needed to be collected. "
"We would like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen these men or the assault taking place.
"Those with information are asked to call DS 1061Rose on 101 with any information. Call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org."
