A woman has spoken out after she woke up to find herself lying in a pool of blood with a hole in her head after a horrific attack.
Aly Levy does not remember the incident in Nottingham city centre but recalls the terrifying moment she gained consciousness and found blood "pouring" from her head.
She said when she came round she saw her two friends also on the floor nearby, covered in blood.
The account worker from Hucknall has been left in pain, covered in bruises after the incident on a night out.
Police are appealing for witnesses and say they are reviewing CCTV footage, Nottinghamshire Live reports.
Aly has said she is going to avoid Nottingham "like the plague" out of fear for her safety after the attack down a dark alleyway on Saturday.
The 29-year-old had been out with her boyfriend Kurt and her friends before heading into the city centre for some drinks.
Her boyfriend went home, and she decided to stay out a bit longer with her friends.
She says the attack must have happened between 1.30 and 3.30am.
Shocking pictures she took from hospital show the extent of her injuries.
"I have never felt unsafe in my own city. I know bad things do happen here, but I've always kept my head down and I've been coming out for years," she told Nottinghamshire Live.
"The only thing I remembered was waking up on the floor in a pool of my own blood.
"When I started to come round, I realised both my friends were also on the floor nearby and covered in blood.
"We’d been brutally attacked in the alleyway behind Revolucion de Cuba."
Aly said she has not been able to give a full account or description of her attackers as she can't remember the incident.
She added: "I don't remember any of the incident so I've not been able to give a proper account to police. I don't think there's much they can do which is really disappointing.
"There has got to be loads of CCTV around.
"I've been left in so much pain all over my body, battered and brusied.
"My shoulder, back, collarbone and head are all in pain. I am going to live with a scar on my forehead for the rest of my life because of this.
"I am quite a tough cookie but this was just horrendous, violent and bloody. I remember being hysterical and I kept passing out.
"I am having to go back to A&E because of the pain I am in.
"I will be avoiding Nottingham like the plague for a while. We weren't drunk, we just had a couple of drinks with friends.
"We weren't messing around looking for trouble."
