A MAN was punched and kicked in an unprovoked attack in Swansea city centre.

The victim was set on from behind and needed medical attention for facial injuries.

Police have put out a description of a suspect and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

A police spokesman said: "The victim, a 30-year-old male, was attacked from behind by the suspect, who punched and kicked him to his head and face.

"Following the assault the culprit was seen to run off up Castle Street in the direction of the Monkey Bar premises.

"The victim was later treated by paramedics for minor facial injuries."

The suspect was described as male, wearing a white shirt, a black jacket and blue or black trousers.

Although the incident happened at about 10.50pm on Wednesday, January 23, details have only now been released.

"Officers believe that at the time of the incident a large taxi was parked nearby, with possibly a driver and passengers who may have witnessed the assault," said the spokesman.

"Following the attack four persons remained with the victim until police arrived.

"We are appealing for these four people to come forward as they may be able to assist with the culprit's identity."

Anyone with information should call police in Swansea on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

    The streets of Swansea City centre are getting the same as the early eighties where it was not safe to go when it got dark, if the courts started to set examples i.e. a prison sentence, it would help to deter the thugs and help to make our streets safer, before you do gooders come on saying prison is not the answer go into the city centre at night and see for your self
