It happened at the junction of Baneswell Road and West Street a month ago, on Saturday 7th December at about 7.20pm.

Two white men, the driver and passenger, got out of a black saloon style car on West Street where the passenger then assaulted the victim, a 43 year old man from Newport, who was stood on the roadside with another man.
