An unprovoked attack in Liskeard has left a man with a fractured skull.
Detectives tell us the 49 year old fell to the floor after being head-butted - and was then kicked in the head.
Police say it happened after a fight at a pub - and they want to hear from anyone who saw something in the early hours of Sunday.
A local man in his twenties has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of GBH.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The 49-year-old Liskeard man was assaulted during a fight involving three other men in the Cornish Ivy pub around 12.30am on Sunday 6 July.

"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.
