Police have released CCTV footage of an attack at Birmingham Pride, and have appealed for help to find a suspect.

The clip shows a man in a purple t-shirt and hat attacking a woman, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the flow.

Police have been unable to identify the perpetrator of the attack, which took place during the Pride festival on 25 May, just after 6pm on Hurst Street.

Digbeth police Sergeant Jonathan Beach said: “This was an unprovoked assault at a time when everyone was enjoying this immensely popular event.

“It happened in the middle of a large crowd with many witnesses. The attacker was wearing a distinctive purple cap and a purple T-shirt.

“I am sure that someone will know who he is and I would urge them to contact me.”

The man is described as around 5 foot 6 inches tall and black.

Anyone with information about the attack should contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or Sgt Beach on 101.
