Homeless man punched in head in 'unprovoked attack' on Commercial Road, Hereford
A CCTV image released by police of two men they want to speak to in connection with an assault on a homeless man.
CCTV images have today been released after a homeless man was punched several times in the head.
Police in Hereford want to speak to two men in connection with an assault on the man, who is in his 50s, and was attacked as he lay on a bench outside Hereford Baptist Church on Commercial Road at 1.45am on September 10.
He was approached by two men who punched him several times in the head before walking away from the city centre towards the railway station.
The victim suffered bruising as a result of the attack.
PC Neil Layton, from Hereford police station, said: “This was a totally unprovoked attack on a homeless man who was simply minding his own business at the time.
“We will not tolerate this sort of mindless violence in our communities and we need to find those responsible so we can bring them to justice.
“We have released images of two men who we are keen to speak to about the assault. I would urge anyone who recognises them to contact us.
“Alternatively, if you recognise yourself as either of the men in the images, please call us so we can eliminate you from our inquiries if necessary.”
