Can any Leeds/Yorkshire based lads help please? …..
In the early hours of Saturday morning Leeds legend Gary McAllister was attacked in Leeds by an unknown assailant.
The attack was totally unprovoked and very viscous, Gary was hospitalised, lost 3 teeth in the attack and had plastic surgery on his lip needing 12 stitches.
The attacker is thought to be American, and due to the severity of the injuries may have been wearing a ‘knuckle duster’ or similar.
The attacker also assaulted and hospitalised 4 other people including 2 women in further incidents, but as yet has not been caught.
Can you please share, if you know anything, or may know someone who may have seen or know anything that can help find this cowardly prick please contact West Yorkshire Police.
