A 31-year-old man received horrible injuries after being beaten with a traffic cone by teenagers.

Police initiated an investigation after a group of teenagers attacked the man outside an establishment in Wallsend, North Tyneside.

In an unprovoked incident earlier this summer, a group of teenagers approached the victim. They began beating him with a traffic cone.

When he became unresponsive and fell to the ground, one of the suspects continued to thrash him, leaving him bleeding and bruised on the street.

After the assault at 12:05 a.m. local time on July 31, a passer-by noticed the victim and dialed 999. However, they were not able to provide any information on the perpetrators, according to Chronicle Live.

An online tabloid said responders rushed the man to Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital. The victim had a cracked nose, multiple facial injuries, and a 4cm long cut on his skull.

He allowed police to reveal photos of his horrific injuries in the hopes of locating his assailants, who are still on the loose a month after the incident.

The teenagers, who are believed to be between the ages of 14 and 17, fled the scene outside Nobles Convenience Store before proceeding to Mullen Road or the Risings Estate.

The circumstances surrounding the assault and the identity of those involved are still being investigated.

Anyone who observed the incident is being asked to come forward by police.

Officers are also requesting that anyone with dashcams or CCTV cameras in the vicinity of Mullen Road and the housing development check the footage.

PC Kasia May, of Northumbria Police, said: "This was an appalling and unprovoked attack that saw a man beaten and left in the street."

"Since the attack, we have carried out extensive CCTV checks and door-to-door enquires. We have so far been unable to get a positive ID on those responsible," the officer said.

The official is now urging the public to come forward with any information that could help them investigate. Any information – regardless of how small or big it is – could help solve this case, the officer said.
