One man pushed another who fell on the toddler, causing injuries to his face and head.

When his 33-year-old father challenged the group he was knocked to the ground and kicked, bruising his face.

The fight happened at 7.30pm on July 26.

PC Nikki Desouza said: "This is a nasty case involving a young child being assaulted, receiving facial injuries, and also his father when he has intervened. I would ask anyone with any knowledge to please come forward."

The first suspect is a slightly overweight white man with scruffy ginger hair who was 5' 10" or 5' 11". He was unshaven and wearing a white or cream t-shirt and shorts.

The second suspect was a white man with short brown hair who was slim and 5' 8" or 5' 9". He was wearing a white t-shirt and shorts.

Anyone with information should email quoting serial 525 of 28/07, call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
