A group of men including one person wearing a giant penis costume is being sought by police over a serious assault during a stag do.

West Yorkshire Police released a stock image of the fancy dress costume to help members of the public remember more details about who may have taken part in the assault.

An attack in the centre of Leeds left a 26-year-old with a shattered shin bone, torn ligaments and a dislocated knee after he was set upon by a group of men, police said.

The victim needed surgery for his injuries.

Police said one member of the group was wearing a “distinctive fancy dress outfit”.

The assault took place around 3am on 2 April in Leeds city centre.

Detective Constable Gaynor Burt said, “The victim was very badly injured in this attack and will still require further surgery.

“While the nature of costume worn by one of the group might be amusing to some, we are hoping that mentioning it will jog someone's memory and assist in tracing those responsible for what was a serious assault that has left the victim with long-term consequences.”

The attacker was described as a white man, about six foot tall, with a shaved head, wearing a white or beige top.

Another member of the group was shorter, of a stocky build with black hair, wearing a red and white T-shirt.

Regarding the fancy dress outfit, officer Burt said, “The costume worn by one of the group is very distinctive and we think anyone who encountered them during the evening would recall it.”
