A man needed hospital treatment following an unprovoked street attack in Leeds.

The 37-year-old victim was walking home from work along Chapel Lane in Armley when he was confronted by four men.

The man was also punched during the attack, which happened between 1.30am and 2.30am on Saturday, November 1.

He suffered cuts and bruises to his face and was left with concussion.
