The victim, a 25-year-old man from Dewsbury, had been watching American band Baroness perform at the Stylus venue at Leeds University Union, in Lifton Place, at about 9.40pm on Friday, February 26.

He was hit in the face after he asked a man who had been deliberately bumping into people on the dancefloor to leave him alone. He later went to hospital and was found to have a fractured eye socket and needed two metal plates fitting.

He was described as white, about 6ft 2ins to 6ft 4ins tall, medium build, with a shaved head. He was aged in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties and was wearing a checked shirt.
