A man suffered a black eye, cuts and a nosebleed after he was punched in the face by two men as he stood outside a pub with friends.

The victim, in his 30s, was outside The Brasenose Arms on Station Road in Cropredy.

A group of men who left the pub approached him and made homophobic comments towards him.

Two of the men then punched him in the face before the group left in a taxi.

The offenders are described as aged between 20 and 25 years old.

One was wearing a black T-shirt, a black baseball cap and had a black bag.

The other man is described as having short black hair with a beard and was wearing a white T-shirt.

The attack happened at around 2am on Sunday 14 August.

Investigating officer, PC Darius Horton, based at Banbury police station, said: “We are appealing to witnesses to this incident to please come forward.

“If anyone has information, please contact police by calling 101 or by making a report online, quoting reference 43220362458.

“Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online.”
