"He was head-butted by one man and fell to the floor where he was kicked in the head.
"The victim was taken to hospital where he is recovering from a fractured skull.
"A 22-year-old man from Liskeard has been arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm. He has been bailed until 22 September.
