Detective Constable Andrew Crook, of Preston CID, said: “This was a particular vicious assault where three men attacked a man in the toilets of a Preston bar.

“The victim suffered some serious facial injuries and we are keen to find those responsible.

“While we launched an initial appeal for information last month, we have yet to find the first male we wished to speak to.

“As part of our enquiries, we have now released a picture of a second man we want to identify.

“If you recognise either man, please contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting crime reference SA1700092.
