Caught on camera: Man stabbed with plastic fork at west Hull takeaway (video)
A MAN who stabbed a takeaway worker in the face with a plastic fork is being hunted by detectives.
A CCTV image of the gang believed to be involved in the attack is included in the Mail's latest Caught On Camera appeal.
The victim was assaulted after he asked a group of three men to leave the West Hull Continental takeaway in Hessle Road.
One of the men punched the worker in the face while still holding the fork.

Detective Constable Justin Marrow, from the city's priority crime team, said: "This was a nasty attack and the victim was lucky to have not been seriously hurt.
"This is a really good image so we hope to identify the people who are responsible for it."
The victim suffered a cut to his eye after the assault, which happened last month.
DC Marrow said: "The men went into the takeaway and two of them ordered some chips.
"There was a heated discussion between the men and the staff member, who tried to usher them out of the shop.
"One of them punched the man in the face. He still had the fork in his hand, which stabbed the man near his eye."
Police are also hoping to identify a man who is suspected of knocking a stranger unconscious on a bus.
When the victim regained consciousness, he realised his wallet was missing.
The assault happened as the victim was sitting on board a bus travelling along Bodmin Road, Bransholme, last month.
DC Marrow said: "The victim asked one of the other passengers to open a window. The suspect then closed the window and there was a verbal altercation between him and the victim.
"He was then assaulted and blacked out for a short period of time. When he got off the bus, he staggered home, which is when he realised his wallet was missing.
"This was a nasty and unprovoked assault."
The victim suffered two black eyes.
Also wanted is a man who punched a woman in the face on the dancefloor of Soho Bar in Posterngate, city centre, after she intervened when he slapped another woman.
Two women who stole £680 from the Original Wholesale Liquor Store in Beverley Road, city centre, are also being sought.
DC Marrow said: "We have some really clear images this time, so I am hopeful several of these people will be identified.
"I want Mail readers to take a look at these pictures because we need their assistance to identify these people who can help us with our inquiries.
"Without the public helping us to identify these people, these crimes could remain undetected and unsolved."
