Det Const Jason Cole said: “I am sure someone out there saw this incident as there were a few people out and about and the victim was bleeding quite heavily from his injuries. I’m particularly appealing to members of the Ethiopian and Eritrean communities who may have been in the restaurant at the time to come forward and speak to police.”
