Police are appealing for a taxi driver who helped a man home after he had suffered "life-changing" injuries in an attack to come forward.

It happened in the Chapel Road area on Sunday, December 30, 2017.

Sometime between 1am and 1.30am, the 37-year-old was attacked by three men near the junction with Margaret Street. He suffered injuries to his head, face and ribs, police said.

“A passing taxi driver stopped to assist the man and helped him home," Constable Robb said.

“We are appealing to this taxi driver, and to anyone else with information or who may have witnessed the incident, to contact police at Strand Road Police Station on 101 quoting CCS 596 of 31/01/18.

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
