Police would like to identify the two men pictured, in relation to the assault of two men early this morning in Queenstown.
 
The two victims were sitting outside Fergburger in Shotover Street at 3.50am, when they were assaulted by two men.  The assault appears to have been unprovoked, and one of the victims required medical treatment for facial injuries.
 
The first man is described as having a solid build, wearing light-coloured pants, a light coloured cap, a black and orange hooded sweatshirt and black shoes. 
 
One picture shows him wearing the black and orange sweatshirt. The second picture shows him carrying the sweatshirt, and you can see a distinctive sleeve tattoo on his left arm.
 
The second man is described as having a medium build, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, green pants, a green/grey beanie, and black Nike skate shoes. 
 
If you have information which could help us identify these two men, please call Queenstown Police on 03 441 1600.
 
We would also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the assault or assisted the two victims at the time.
