Officers investigating a serious assault in Hemel Hempstead where a man was left with serious injuries after being knocked unconscious are making a new appeal for information.
Police have released an image of a man who was possibly in the area at the time of the offence who they believe may be able to assist with their investigation.
The incident happened at around 12.30am on Saturday, October 26, outside the Full House pub in Marlowes.
A 40-year-old man was assaulted after leaving the premises. He was punched in the head, and was knocked unconscious. He sustained serious injuries.
A 21-year-old man from Buckinghamshire was arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH). He has since been released under investigation.
Detective constable Greenaway, who is investigating, said: “This incident took place in the early hours of the morning at a busy location in the town. We believe that there would have been many people in the area.
“I want to appeal to those who were in the smoking area of the pub, or passers-by who may have witnessed the assault, to get in contact with us as you may have information that could help us solve this case.
“Alternatively, if you recognise the male pictured, please get in contact with us, as it is believed he may have been in the area at the time of the offence and could have information which could help our investigation.”
