A man attacked in the middle of a Norwich street in broad daylight has escaped with only minor injuries.
Around 9.50am on Saturday, police and ambulance were called to Wolfe Road near to the junction with Quebec Road after reports of a man lying injured in the street.
Two Good Samaritans had helped the man, thought to be in his early 20s, into the nearby Coral bookmakers for treatment.
A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: 'When officers arrived they found the man injured and he was taken to hospital with injuries to his head and his hand. 'Hospital staff have confirmed they are minor injuries.'
No arrests have been made over the assault, which spilled from the street into the driveway of a nearby home.
Staff at the One Stop newsagent were alerted and helped the victim until ambulance crews arrived.
One member of staff said: 'You don't expect that sort of thing on your doorstep - especially in broad daylight,' .'
