Police seek man in attack near bar

Tampa police hope the public can help them identify a man who attacked a group of people Saturday, breaking one man's jaw before pistol whipping another near a Davis Islands bar.

The unidentified man walked up to a group of four people about 11 p.m. near Yeoman's Road Pub at 236 E Davis Boulevard. The man punched one member of the group in the face, breaking his jaw, before pulling out a handgun and hitting another man, police said.

It was unclear what provoked the confrontation. The group ran to a nearby home and called the police.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.
