A man has been left with eighteen stitches to his eye after an attack in Newquay
It happened in the early hours of Sunday morning as he walked with another man near the subway on Bank Street.
Someone started shouting abuse - before punching the thirty-two year old twice and running off.
Police call it unprovoked and want anyone who saw what happened to get in touch.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall said: "Two men were walking down the street when an unknown man began shouting over to them with verbal abuse.
"The offender then approached and punched one man twice in the face causing serious injury. He then ran off shouting further abuse.
"The victim, aged 32 and from Newquay, sustained a cut above his left eye requiring 18 stitches and a black eye. He was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.
"Police are seeking the suspect who is described as white, around 5ft 3ins to 5ft 4ins tall, of medium build, wearing a blue baseball cap, a grey hoody, blue jeans and white trainers.
"Police are also appealing for witnesses to the incident and information to help trace the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference CR/095318/14."
