A MAN in his 20s should have been celebrating his winning after he pocketed $600 from the pokies at a popular south Rockhampton pub.

Instead he was nursing serious facial wounds and bruises after two men bashed him outside The Brunswick Hotel on Friday night.

The 24-year-old man from The Range was in the hotel's pokie room when four offenders approached him.

It was around 11.40pm on Friday.

A police media spokeswoman said the offenders told the victim to give them $600 of his pokie winnings.

The offenders then forced the victim outside, where two of them started to punch him.

He received a cut to his upper lip, grazes to his arm and bruising on the left side of his face, the spokeswoman said.

The Queensland Ambulance Service did not transport him to Rockhampton Hospital. Police are aware of the suspects and want to speak with the two men, who are known to the victim. 

On Saturday, Rockhampton CIB detectives obtained CCTV footage of the offenders and are continuing with their investigation.

They are urging anyone who saw the attack, or knows any information, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or 131 444.
