An Asian teenager was bitten in the ear during an assault in Windsor in the early hours of New Years Day.
Police said the 18-year-old was walking along a footpath between Goswell Hill and Peascod Street at 3am when he was assaulted by a group of three or four men.
They said he suffered a cut to his head and a serious bite injury to his ear, that required plastic surgery.
Detective Constable Iain Watkinson, investigating, said: "The victim is Asian and was wearing a silver jacket at the time of the attack.
"There would have been a lot of people in the area, as this was a busy New Year’s Eve, and I am appealing for anyone who may have seen what happened to come forward and assist with our enquiries."
Call Det Con Watkinson on police non-emergency number 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
