Man suffers broken jaw in an unprovoked attack in the Amber Valley

A man has been left with a broken jaw following a serious, unprovoked assault in Somercotes.

The 38-year-old man had been enjoying a night out in the town and was walking along Nottingham Road between Aldi and McDonalds when he felt a blow from behind.

He fell to the floor and was kicked to the head, falling unconscious. He awoke and later went to hospital where he required surgery.

He did not get a good look at who attacked him but he thinks it was two white men in their 20s.

The attack happened at around 1.30am on Saturday 30 November.

Police want to hear from witnesses, or anyone who has dashcam footage and was driving in the area at the time.

Contact officer in the case Detective Staff Investigator Amy Bavester quoting reference 19*643335.
