A WOMAN was headbutted and a man kicked and punched during a late night assault in Bromsgrove Town Centre.
The incident happened between 11.45pm on October 5 and 12.05am on October 6 in Cleggs Entry, which runs between Betfred and Holland and Barrett on the High Street.
The victims - a 30-year-old woman and 23-year-old man - took the short cut through the alley after watching Aston Villa v Hull City in the Grapevine pub earlier that day.
It happened as the pair passed a group of men and comments of a sexual nature were directed towards the woman. The boyfriend asked the group to not make comments like that and it was then the assault happened.
The first attacker confronted the man and his girlfriend stepped in front of him. He then headbutted her in the face, giving her a black eye.
The second attacker, one of the other men in the group, then kicked and punched her boyfriend - he had a cut above his eye which required medical treatment and stitches and he needed an x-ray as he had a suspected fractured skull.
The main attacker was white, tall and of large build with strawberry blond hair. He was wearing a cream jumper and dark jeans.
The other men in the group were all wearing dark clothing.
PC Matt Hunt of West Mercia Police said police went along on the night but were unable to establish the full facts.
He added statements had now been taken from the victims and the incident was being treated as assault and malicious wounding.
“Although some weeks have elapsed, we hope someone will remember the group watching the Villa match in the Grapevine, and recognise the description of the main offender, who was distinctive due to his size,” he said.
Witnesses or anyone with any information should call PC Hunt on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
