Police are hunting for two men following the attack on Main Street in Prestwick and are considering whether it was “targeted”.
The 20-year-old victim was with a group of friends near the junction with Kyle Street at around 10.30pm on July 16 when an altercation with the two men unknown to them broke out.
The injured man was taken to University Hospital Ayr and later required surgery.
