The man, aged 31 and from Lye, suffered head injuries and was knocked out but was saved from the assault by a fancy dress party goer dressed as a caveman.

Dc John Horrobin, from West Midlands Police's major investigation team in Dudley, said: "There had been a fancy dress party at the Mitre Inn on that night and we are appealing to anyone that may have seen the victim on the night to come forward.

"The victim has little recollection of the attack and thankfully he will make a full recovery."

The incident took place on Saturday October 27, the victim left the pub at around 1.30am and was followed onto the street.

The shocking CCTV images show the moment the man was attacked and the arrival of unusual good samaritan who saved him from further injuries.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Dc Horrobin by calling West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Anyone notice someone in a high viz jacket, just watching? They seem to be of importance, wearing this yet don't do anything to help? Good thing that caveman had decent morals and ran to the victim to help.

Those watching deserve a name and shame for their demonstrable lack of intervention, and the scum with the fists, a few years at any one her majesty's fine hotels should do the trick! Disappointing to see the old home town has deteriorated to this.
