A man is in hospital with serious head and facial injuries after an assault in central Dunedin.

Police say the 30-year-old man was attacked by up to 20 people, in the car park off Rattray Street across from the Queens Garden about 1am on Sunday.

The police don't know what sparked the attack, but once the victim fell to the ground, it appears he was set upon by numerous people who kicked him in the head and body.

Police say there were a large number of people in the area when the attack occurred and they want to hear from witnesses.
