Police are looking for a woman who knocked a man out cold in Southampton.

Sometime between 1am and 2.30am on Friday 14 March, the 20-year-old victim is understood to have been attacked on Bedford Place while he was walking with friends to get a taxi. They saw a group of men and women across the road shouting at them.

A woman from the group came towards them. The next thing the victim recalls is waking up about 30 minutes later having been assaulted.  

His injuries include a broken thumb which has required wiring and metal rods, a hairline fracture on his right cheekbone, a sprained neck, and bruising to his face. The victim was treated in hospital for his injuries.

Detectives are keen to speak to potential witnesses who may be able to provide a detailed description of the group of men and women seen on the other side of the road.

Anyone with any information about the assault is asked to contact TDC Lucy Stewart at Shirley CID on 101 or via the website
