Video: Men wanted over brutal Hull city centre attack
A good samaritan who tried to stop an attack in Hull city centre was punched to the ground, stamped on and left unconscious.
Now, police have released CCTV video of two men they want to speak to in connection with the assault, in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday, August 27.
A 25-year-old Hull man was walking past McDonald's at the junction of King Edward Street and Jameson Street at about 1.30am when he saw two men attacking another man.
He intervened to help the victim, who escaped towards King Edward Street.

The two attackers then turned on the 25-year-old man, punching him to the ground and stamping on his head.
The suspects ran off along Jameson Street and are believed to have eventually headed on to Holderness Road.
They are said to have had very distinctive "full-sleeve" tattoos on their right arms.
The first suspect is a white, muscular man in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a short-sleeved black shirt, black trousers or jeans and black shoes. He had short, dark hair shaved shorter at the back and sides.
The second suspect is a white, slim man, also in his late teens or early 20s. He had short, dark hair, and was wearing a grey, short-sleeved top with a white collar, dark blue jeans and light-coloured espadrilles with darker colour around the laces.
DC Matt Dickinson said: “This was a particularly vicious attack that was unprovoked and the victim was lucky not to have sustained more serious injuries.
“I am sure someone will recognise the two people in the CCTV and I would urge them to come forward.”
Detectives also want to locate the man who made off when the 25-year-old man intervened. He is described as a white man with dark hair and glasses.
