TWO attackers used a child's buggy and a traffic cone to beat up a man.
The 39-year-old victim was walking home after a night out when the thugs struck in the apparently motiveless attack on Coule Royd, Dalton, at 11.45pm last Thursday.
They struck him with the unusual weapons, then punched and kicked him several times.
He fell to the ground and was knocked out when his head hit the kerb.
He suffered two black eyes and a broken nose and a tooth was knocked out.
One of the attackers is white, aged 18 to 20, 5ft 6in tall and skinny. He had a shaved head and wore a white hooded top, light-coloured tracksuit bottoms and a white baseball cap.
The other is white and 5ft 10in, with very short, dark, curly hair. He wore a blue hooded top.
