Man punched in head in attack outside Huntingdon pub

A MAN was punched to the head and body in an unprovoked attack in Huntingdon.

The 20-year-old victim was walking in Humber Road after leaving the Lord Protector pub when he was approached by a group of youths at just after midnight on New Year’s Day.

A group of people passed him at the junction with Lavender Court but two stopped and punched him twice to the head and twice to the body.

The attackers ran off while the victim ran to a nearby house where residents called police.

One of the attackers was described as male, slim, about 16 and with blond hair down to his ears.
