Did you witness an assault in Evesham?

Officers investigating a report of an assault in Evesham are looking for witnesses to come forward.

A man in his 50s was walking along Avon Street towards High Street at around 3.15am on Sunday (3 September) when he was approached by two unknown men who asked him for a cigarette.

When the man told them he did not have any, one of the men is believed to have assaulted the victim - causing him to fall to the floor. The two men are understood to have continued assaulting the man while he was on the floor before taking a quantity of cash and a key from him.

When a member of the public shouted out from a nearby window, the two men left in the direction of High Street. The victim suffered minor facial injuries.

The men are both described as being in their early 20s. One was of slim build with blond hair and the other was thought to be of a larger build with dark hair.

Enquiries are ongoing but officers are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 478S of 4 September.
