(Updated 9:44am 7th April 2014)
The victim, a 24-year-old local man, was attacked outside Barclays Bank at the junction of Gowthorpe and Finkle Street at around 2.30am on Sunday 30 March 2014.
He was in the company of a woman and as they turned into Finkle Street they passed five men walking in the opposite direction. One of the men and the victim had a verbal altercation during which another of the group punched him in the face.
The victim fell to the ground and sustained serious injuries to his face. His jaw was split in two and he suffered a fracture higher up his jaw bone.
He spent three days in hospital, where he had an operation to insert metal plates and screws into his jaw to hold his chin together. He may also need further surgery.
It is believed that a number of people were in Finkle Street at the time of the incident and officers are urging any witnesses to come forward and help the investigation.
Anyone who can help the investigation is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for Detective Constable Amanda Bostwick or Selby CID.
