The victim was walking alone when he was attacked by a man who then ran off towards Main Street.

Police are particularly keen to speak to a member of the public who attempted to help the victim following the attack.

'Violent attack'

The suspect was described as white, aged about 30, 5ft 11in tall and of medium build.

He was wearing a dark tracksuit top and bottoms and a black skip cap.

"The area where this attack occurred is generally considered a quiet residential location.

"I'm conscious there may have been members of the public in and around the area at the time who may have seen the suspect or the victim and can offer information which assists our investigation."
