CCTV Released Of Moment Man's Jaw Was Broken
Video showing the moment a man had his jaw broken after he was punched leaving a pizza takeaway has been released as police attempt to trace his attacker.
The CCTV footage shows the 23-year-old leaving a fast food outlet in Bristol Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham.
The victim is followed out of the shop and floored with a single upper-cut punch to the jaw which leaves him unconscious.
The unprovoked attack happened on February 25 last year, and the man was left needing surgery.
West Midlands Police have released the video and stills in the hope of bringing the attacker to justice.
Detective Constable Louise Corcoran said: "This was a serious unprovoked assault.
"It's had a lasting effect on the victim, who has been left physically and emotionally scarred."

what do you think?
This country gets worse and until we have proper punishments and sentences instead of Micky mouse fines this will carry on
Lets hope someone knows this man and puts him away where he belongs.
This is why more police on the streets is needed
Got to ask y has it taken 10 and a half months since this unprovoked attack to release this cctv footage?
I must have been typing my comment at the same time as you...
You've raised a point that the police wont answer. This crime is getting more publicity now than probably when it happened.How can they epect people to remember faces and details over that time lag. Even Crimewatch dont broadcast for help until about a year afterwards. It makes me wonder just how much the police want a solution.
It's good to see the police acted on this CCTV footage straight away........
