Police are appealing for the identities of three assailants who punched a man to the ground outside Control early yesterday morning. 

Police received a call at about 3.20 am alerting them to the incident in which a 21-year-old man from Bradford, received a serious head injury and was admitted to Leeds General Infirmary.

His injuries were not considered life threatening and he is now in a stable condition following surgery.

Detective Inspector Phil Jackson, of Leeds District CID, said: “We have recovered good quality CCTV footage which shows the incident in which the victim was punched.

“It appears there was an altercation involving two groups of men outside the nightclub which has led to the victim being assaulted.

“We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises the three men shown in the CCTV images.”

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact Detective Constable Craig Mason at Elland Road via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
