A man then stepped in to offer his help to the victim and made contact with his son.
Detective Constable Hayley Jones said: “The victim had enjoyed a night out on the bank holiday weekend and was making his way home when he was set upon in what appears to be an entirely unprovoked attack.
“We would now urge the good Samaritan who came to the victim’s aid to get in touch, as he may be able to help us with our enquiries.
“Similarly, anyone with information that could help us identify these women is also urged to get in touch.”
Anybody with information should contact police on 101, quoting crime reference SA1607409.
