Cambridgeshire police are appealing for information following an assault in Huntingdon on Friday night.
Between about 7pm and 8pm, the victim, a 30-year-old man, was walking from Sapley Square, passed the Golden Knight pub, heading towards Cotton Court when he was approached by a group of about five to seven men who asked him for a cigarette.
After telling them he didn’t smoke, one of the group shouted at him before he was struck to the side of his head, causing him to lose consciousness for a short period of time.
A spokesman for the force said: “This was an unprovoked attack which has left the victim very shaken – thankfully he was not seriously injured.
“We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the attack or who knows who is responsible.”
