CCTV images of a group of men being sought by the police following a recent vicious assault in St Albans city centre have been released.

A 28-year-old man was left with broken teeth and head injuries after being violently beaten outside Subway on St Peter’s Street between 2.20-2.30am on Friday, December 21.

His sister, who did not wish to be named, said her brother had left Club Veeda with a woman colleague following a Christmas function when he was approached and then attacked by up to seven men.

She said that he suffered severe facial and bodily wounds, lost front teeth when he was kicked after being knocked to the ground, and head injuries.

The assault stopped momentarily when a taxi driver bravely intervened but the man was again assaulted further down the street.

He was taken to hospital several times in the week following the assault.

His mother told the Herts Advertiser yesterday that her son was on the mend but has to pay up to £2,000 to have his front teeth replaced after they were kicked out of his mouth.
