Police in Birmingham have released CCTV images of three men who carried out a violent attack on a homeless man in broad daylight in the centre of Sutton Coldfield.

The unprovoked attack took place on Wednesday 26 March at 5.45pm in Queens Street.

A total of four men surrounded the 20-year-old man and punched and kicked him in the head and body, before running off.

The man suffered cuts and bruises following the assault.

PC Gary Robinson from the Investigation Team, Sutton Coldfield, said: “This was a violent assault in broad daylight on a vulnerable homeless man, who was only prevented from further harm when a member of the public intervened.”

There were a total of four men who carried out the assault and police have managed to obtain clear CCTV images of three of them- they are described as two white men and one black man, aged 20-25, between 5’6-5’10, but there were a number of other people, including one woman who were in the group watching the assault.”

Anyone who recognises the men in the images should contact the Investigation Team at Birmingham North on 101.
