Coventry Editorial 29th Aug, 2020 Updated: 29th Aug, 2020

West Midlands Police want to trace this man in connection with a brick attack which left a pub doorman injured in Coventry.

He is suspected of driving the attacker away from the Oak Inn, Far Gosford Street, in a grey Seat Leon on Sunday morning (23 August).

The doorman was struck on the head after a brick was hurled at him and, although he suffered serious injuries, is expected to make a full recovery.

It’s believed to have stemmed from an earlier dispute where three men were refused admission to the premises.

PC James Rees, from force CID at Coventry said: “This was a nasty attack and enquiries to trace those involved are ongoing.

“We want to trace this man who we believe was the getaway driver.”
