West Midlands Police have released pictures of an Asian man, thought to be in his 30s, taken during an altercation outside a Birmingham post office.

The 34-year-old victim was left with a black eye following the incident near Birchfield Road post office in Aston at 11.15am on January 4.

CCTV footage showed the attacker, wearing a navy blue Nike hooded top and light blue Adidas bottoms, driving off in a silver Nissan Qashqai.

Pc Leigh Harrison said: "This was a completely unprovoked attack.

"The victim was using the ATM for no longer than a couple of minutes, but apparently that warranted being head-butted.

"Anyone who reacts so irrationally, and so violently, needs catching, so I'd urge anyone who believes they recognise the man to contact me.

"The man was wearing flip-flops, unusual given that it was the middle of winter, while the CCTV seems to show him having a prominent, angular nose."
