Police are appealing for information after a man was subjected to an unprovoked attack in Crewe.
At 5.16am on Friday 7 December 2012, police were called to Walthall Street in Crewe after a 23 year-old man was assaulted by six men as he stood outside his address seeing his girlfriend safely home.
As the man, who is Slovakian, stood watching his girlfriend walk along the road he noticed a group of men standing nearby. As he turned to go back inside he was approached by the men who made a racist comment to him before launching an attack on him which left him with a badly broken wrist.
The men are described as white with English accents. One of them is thought to have been wearing a leather jacket.
DS Jim Boulton said: "This was an unprovoked attacked on an innocent man for what appears to be no other reason than the colour of his skin.
"This type of behaviour is unacceptable and we are determined to catch those responsible.
"If you were passing by Walthall Street at its junction with Gainsborough Road this morning and witnessed a group of men assaulting a man in the street, or if you have any information that may help with our investigation, please contact us."
Anyone with information should contact DC Jim Boulton on 101 quoting incident number 113 of 7 December 2012.
