Officers investigating a double hate crime in Nottingham are appealing for information.

Two men were said to be walking with two female friends in St Mary's Gate in the Lace Market at around 2am on Sunday 2 July. One of them had their arm draped over the other when they were attacked by three men who told them they were gay whilst punching them and kicking them to the floor.

The pair were taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre where they were treated for severe bruising and concussion.

So far CCTV and other enquiries have been unsuccessful in tracing the suspects and officers are appealing to anyone who might have seen anything around the time it happened.

The first man is described as white, around 6ft tall, of a stocky build with light coloured hair. He was wearing a white coloured long sleeved shirt and blue jeans possibly with Van type trainers on.

The second man is described as white with prominent cheek bones. He was wearing a blue checked shirt.

We don't have a description of the third man.

If you recognise these men or have any information that could help, please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident 70 of 2 July

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
