Police in Scarborough have released an image of a man they want to speak to following an assault on a German tourist in a pub.
The attack happened in the Ramshill Hotel, Ramshill Road, on Saturday October 10.
The 44-year-old man from Germany who was visiting Scarborough and attending a gig at the Ramshill, was punched to the head several times after intervening when a man showed unwanted attention towards a woman he was with.
The victim was attacked a second time by the suspect, causing him to fall to the floor and knock over the woman he was with who was also visiting from Germany.
Both the man and woman sustained minor injuries in the incident and have since returned to Germany.
A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: “Anyone who can help identify the man shown in the image is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for PC James Dunn or email firstname.lastname@example.org
“If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
