Police are appealing for information after an unprovoked assault in Brampton in the early hours of October 7 in which a man was left with serious injuries.
At about 12.30am, Gary Holden, 47, was waiting for a taxi home from a party in Thrapston Road when he was punched by a stranger, knocking him to the floor.
He was with his partner, who called for an ambulance to take him to Hinchingbrooke Hospital. He’d suffered serious injuries including several cuts to his face, a fractured skull and a bleed on the brain.
Speaking about the assault, Gary said: “I have had to rely on my partner to let me know what happened as I can’t remember anything from the night, only waking up in hospital.
“It hasn’t just been the physical pain that has affected me, I have no idea who has done this and my partner now worries every time I leave the house.”
