A man is receiving hospital treatment for serious head injuries following an apparently unprovoked attack outside a Middlesbrough pizza shop at the weekend.
The 48 year old was outside Gi-Gi’s Pizzas on Linthorpe Road at around five past two on Saturday morning when he was approached and spoken to briefly by a man who then assaulted him before running off towards Princess Road.
The victim was taken by ambulance to James Cook University Hospital.
The suspect is described as white, in his 20s, and wearing jeans and a checked shirt.
Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have witnessed the incident. Anyone else with information on the identity of the suspect should also contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

Plans to introduce seven day access to GP services have been rubber stamped by the local NHS.
From 1 April next year, people across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland will be able to access GP services until 9.30pm on weekdays and from 8am-9.30pm on weekends and bank holidays from 4 extended access GP centres across South Tees.
The extended centres will replace existing walk in centres in North Ormesby and Eston Grange. They will be sited at Redcar Primary Care Hospital, the One Life Centre on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough, East Cleveland Primary Care Hospital at Brotton, and North Ormesby Health Village.
The new arrangements follow a 12-week public consultation held from January to April 2016. The CCG consulted the public on three options, all of which offered extended access to GP services that replaced the area’s two walk in centres.
