Police have issued an image of a man they would like to trace after an off-duty police officer was attacked in Nottingham.
The Leicestershire sergeant was inside a bar in King Street when he overheard a man making racial comments to another person.
When the off-duty officer challenged the man over his behaviour, the man tried to punch him.
The altercation moved outside the premises where the officer was repeatedly punched by a group of four males.
The incident happened at around 8.10pm on Saturday, 7 October.
PC Koen Broers, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“The off-duty officer was enjoying an evening out with friends and deserves credit for intervening when he overheard a man using racist language.
“What followed was an unprovoked and despicable act which could easily have left him seriously injured.
“Thankfully his injuries were not severe but we are determined to find those responsible.
“We have reviewed CCTV images and have identified a man we would like to speak to as part of the investigation.
“If you know the man in the picture or you are the man in the picture then please get in touch with us.
“You can call 101, quoting incident number 23000624438 or information can also be left anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
