The victim of a random Melbourne street bashing has been left in hospital with medical staples in his head and a black eye, as police hunt for his attacker.

The 33-year-old victim was delivering packages in St Kilda East early on Sunday when an unknown man punched him in the head, hit him with a torch and left him unconscious on the road.

The offender is believed to be 25-35 years old with brown hair and a pale complexion and investigators on Thursday released a computer-generated image of the attacker, along with a photo of the victim's injuries.
