An Australian tourist has had his head slammed into a concrete bin after a random attack while on holiday in New Zealand.

Police want to identify this man following an early-morning assault in Queenstown.

One of the victims was headbutted and then punched several times in the face.

The 22-year-old was taken to Lakes District Hospital to be treated for a potential broken nose, facial injuries and a concussion.

The alleged assault happened at 3.50am today where the two victims were assaulted outside Fergburger in Shotover Street.

The offender "turned up wanting to fight", and after causing another scuffle nearby, attacked the victims, Sgt Pirovano said.

But despite the initial steps, Mattis said Wednesday he was " not aware " of any steps taken by Kim to denuclearize. He went on to say the pair had "great chemistry" and remains optimistic about a future relationship.

Police said the assault appears to have been unprovoked, and they are asking for any witnesses.

When he tried to flee the scene about 4am, his head was slammed into the concrete bin.

The second man police are hunting was seen sporting a green beanie, grey hoodie, green trousers and black Nike shoes.

"The second picture shows him carrying the sweatshirt, and you can see a distinctive sleeve tattoo on his left arm".

One man wanted by police was captured on camera wearing a black and orange hoodie, light-coloured trousers and hat and black shoes.

Anyone with information about the identity of the two men or who anyone who saw the assault is asked to call Queenstown police on 03 441 1600.
