A MAN was left in hospital suffering from a broken jaw after being attacked as he walked through Southampton.

The 41-year-old was walking along Brintons Road with a friend when they were passed by a man going in the opposite direction.

After a brief argument the pair walked off, but as they approached Taj Tandoori Kebabs, in Nichols Road, they were attacked by the same man.

The attacker is described as white, aged about 25, with short dark hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt, and blue jeans and had an English accent.

Anyone with information about the incident, at about 10pm on May 29, should contact Shirley CID on 101.
