A pair of drunks pretending to be policemen tried to "arrest" a man for using a mobile phone in the street before head-butting and punching their victim in a violent attack.

James Erasmuson, 30, and Levi Stephenson, 29, launched the assault in Bread Street, after telling victim Stephen Jenkins he was being detained for making the call.

Five minutes earlier, the men had told passer-by Jane McMillan that they were police officers after flashing a disabled bus pass as "ID", and said they wanted to search her for drugs.
