Man has part of ear bitten off in Boxing Day restaurant attack

Police have appealed for information after an attack in a Warwick restaurant in which part of a man's ear was bitten off.

The assault happened at the Spice Hut Indian restaurant in Warwick's Market Square on Boxing Day.

According to local reports a disagreement between two groups of men escalated into a physical confrontation. As a result one man was left with life-changing injuries.

Detective Inspector Jon Belcher told the Leamington Observer: "This man has been left with life-changing injuries, in what was a savage and unprovoked attack.

"We are keen to hear from anyone near the restaurant or in Market Square who can help our investigation in any way.

"There are four men, two are described as white, in their mid 30s, around 5ft 10ins tall and of a stocky build.

"The third man is described as mixed race in his mid 30s and of average build, the fourth man is described as white, aged mid 30s to 40s, 6ft tall and of a large, stocky build."

Anyone with information has been asked to contact DC 854 Karen Rook on 101 quoting incident 333 of 26 December or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
