The victim of a shocking attack in Huddersfield has come forward.
The man who suffered permanent disfigurement when half of his ear was bitten off in a street attack has handed himself in to police.
The man, who has not been named, was seriously wounded during a fight in Huddersfield’s King Street on Sunday night.
Detectives investigating the incident had appealed for him to seek medical help after he fled the scene and he is not believed to have been treated in hospital.
Now he has come forward.
Det Insp Mark Truelove, of Huddersfield CID, said: “A man who lost part of his ear during an altercation in Huddersfield on Sunday night has handed himself in at Huddersfield this afternoon.
“We are yet to interview him and no further information will be released at this time.”
The attack, which was witnessed by bouncers at nearby bars and drinkers enjoying a night out, has shocked the community.
The grim discovery of half an ear complete with diamond stud was made at around 9.30pm.
Two men from Holmfirth arrested on suspicion of wounding have been released on police bail.
Police are still appealing for witnesses who have not already come forward to get in touch via Huddersfield CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 5555 111.
