POLICE are closing in on the man who they believe assaulted Dominos delivery driver Peter Strzelczyk.
They have identified a Rockhampton man as a suspect.
Mr Strzelczyk, 38, suffered two black eyes, a broken nose and swelling to his face after being struck on the head several times in an attack outside the Airlie Beach Dominos at about 9.30pm on Saturday April 21.
The force of the blows caused him to fall and hit his head on concrete.
He spent time in hospital.
The lead in the investigation comes as a direct result of the Whitsunday Times' April 29 report into the attack, which included a picture sourced from CCTV footage of two men police were seeking for help with their enquiries.
Officer in Charge of Whitsunday police, Senior Sergeant Steve O'Connell said police were very pleased by the public's response.
“The police would like to express our thanks to the members of the community who contacted police and provided essential information on this investigation,” he said.
“[A suspect was identified] as a direct consequence of public information.
“Expression of concern and community spirit has been great comfort to the victim and great value to the investigation.”
