Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was hit in the face in Nottingham city centre.
Officers attended the Old Market Square at around 12.15pm on Friday (16 June) following reports a man had been assaulted.
The victim was reportedly hit in the face with a pot while he was standing in the square, outside the Five Guys restaurant.
He sustained facial injuries during the attack, with officers spotting pieces of broken pottery on the floor when they arrived at the scene.
A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
Police are now appealing for anyone who saw what happened or who has footage of the incident on their phones to come forward.
Detective Sergeant Steve Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “As this happened in the middle of the day in a busy market square, there will have certainly been people who saw this incident unfold.
“Someone may have also captured footage on their phone showing what happened, so if this is the case, it is very important that they call the police, so that we can review it.”
Anyone who has any information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 377 of 16 June 2023, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
