Police are hunting for two young men who racially abused a group of people in a city centre before attacking one of them.
The suspects shouted racist remarks at the group, which was made up of males and females of Pakistani origin, and went on to punch and kick one of the men.
The assault happened in Dundee's Albert Square just after midnight.
The pair, who are both described as being between 16 and 20 years of age and about 5ft 8in tall with short, dark hair, continued to shout offensive remarks as they left the area, Tayside Police said.
One of the suspects was of a slim build and was wearing a black hoodie and dark jeans, while the other, who was carrying a black guitar case, wore a light-coloured tracksuit possibly with a blue band to the front or sleeves.
