A TEENAGER was knocked unconscious after a vicious attack in Huddersfield.
The 18-year-old was punched until he passed out – by two men who had given him a lift home.
The victim suffered a broken nose and damaged teeth during the attack in Shelley at 1.45am on Sunday.
Police say the man had just left the Queens Head pub in Scissett at around 1am when he accepted a lift from a group of people.
He got into a red hatchback car which was driven through Skelmanthorpe and into Shelley.
But as the vehicle got to the junction of Huddersfield Road and Westerly Way, the victim was threatened so he jumped out.
It was then that the man who was driving, and the passenger, attacked the victim, punching him until he was unconscious.
He suffered a broken nose and damage to his teeth.
A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “A girl aged around 18 is believed to have helped the victim immediately after the attack and we would like to speak to her as a witness.”
The attackers left the scene in the direction of Kirkburton and the victim was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for treatment.
Police are looking for a white man, aged 19 to 21, 6ft tall and of medium build. He has short dark hair and was wearing a red or brown T-shirt.
The other man is white, aged 17 or 18, around 5ft 10ins tall and slim.
He was wearing a dark blue hooded top with white cuffs and a white baseball cap.
The woman who helped the victim is aged 17 to 18, is 5ft 5ins tall and has long blonde straight hair.
She wore a green baggy V-neck top and a long black skirt with blue jeans underneath.
Police are appealing for anyone who saw the attack or the car leaving the pub to contact Sgt Matthew Hawker on (01484) 436793 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
