A MAN left for dead after being attacked by two men in the street is being treated for a head injury in a London hospital.

The 47-year old victim, who is in the National Hospital in Queen's Square, is believed to have visited two pubs in St Albans before the incident.

The assault occurred between 7.45pm and 8pm on Sunday, August 23, after the victim, who is from St Albans, had been to The Farmer's Boy and Great Northern pubs.

He is believed to have been approached by two men in London Road, one of whom struck him causing him to fall over. Both men then walked off, leaving the victim unconscious in the road.

Several members of the public stopped to help including a cyclist whom police are keen to interview.

The first suspect is described as a white man with a medium build, short shaved blonde hair, wearing a white vest top, dark knee-length shorts and black flip flops.

The second man is described as a white man, mid 20s, slim build, short blonde hair, wearing a bright pink t-shirt, blue flowery knee shorts and carrying his flip flops.

Anyone who witnessed the altercation or anything leading up to it or was among those who stopped to help is asked to contact 0845 33 00 222 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
