Man's ear half bitten off in attack at pub.

A 31-YEAR-old man had nearly half his ear bitten off in a fight at a Midland pub, said police.

The attack happened outside the Cedar Tree pub in Walsall Wood Road, Aldridge, on Tuesday, March 27, just after 6.30pm.

Detectives said the scuffle resulted in one of the two men involved having 40 per cent of his ear bitten off, leaving him permanently disfigured.

Police want to trace two witnesses, believed to be a couple, who were sitting on a bench outside the pub at the time.

The male was described as white, 5ft 9ins, of muscular build with short brown curly hair and wearing a red shirt. The woman was white with long blonde hair, blue eyes and wore a black top.

A man, aged 31, was arrested and charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

He will appear at Walsall Magistrates Court later this month.

Witnesses should phone Force CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
