Detectives are investigating a robbery after a car driver and passenger were viciously attacked.
The attack took place last Thursday, when the victims were travelling along Lingfield Road in Edenbridge at 10.55pm.
They noticed two men standing in the street close to the Coomb Field junction, who approached the vehicle once it had stopped.
One of the men reached through the window, grabbed the keys from the ignition and punched the driver in the face before running away.
The passenger in the car tried to chase him, but was set upon by the second man who repeatedly punched him in the head.
The driver tried to help but was attacked again by the man who initially ran away.
One of the men then leaned through the driver’s door and stole a laptop from the back seat, before they both fled when another vehicle began to approach the scene.
Descriptions of the offenders have now been released by police, who are appealing to anyone who may be able to help with their enquiries.
One of the men was white, aged between 20 and 30 years old, described as being between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 11ins. He was of medium build with very short hair and was wearing a tan coloured cardigan.
The second offender was white, aged between 17 to 19 years old and around 5ft 6ins tall. He had short light brown hair and was wearing a blue long sleeved jumper, with hooded top and dark jeans.
