A flip-flop wearing attacker with a distinctive pointed nose has headbutted a man for taking too long to use a cash machine.

Police in England have released pictures of an Asian man, thought to be in his 30s, taken during an altercation outside a Birmingham post office.

The 34-year-old victim was left with a black eye following the incident near Birchfield Road post office in Aston at 11.15am on January 4.

CCTV footage showed the attacker, wearing a navy blue Nike hooded top and light blue Adidas bottoms, driving off in a silver Nissan Qashqai.

Catching

Pc Leigh Harrison said: "This was a completely unprovoked attack.

"The victim was using the ATM for no longer than a couple of minutes, but apparently that warranted being headbutted.

"Anyone who reacts so irrationally, and so violently, needs catching, so I'd urge anyone who believes they recognise the man to contact me.

"The man was wearing flip-flops, unusual given that it was the middle of winter, while the CCTV seems to show him having a prominent, angular nose."
