A suspected catapult attack that shattered the window of a car has left the victim in a serious condition.
The crime, which caused a man in his mid-20s to suffer a head wound, happened at around 3pm on October 28 in a parked car near Sweetbriar Lane, Elvington, Dover.
The victim was with another man inside the vehicle when the window of the car was smashed, and the victim was hit in the head with a small object thought to have been caused by a catapult a short distance away.
Detectives reviewing CCTV and making local enquiries would still like to hear from any witnesses.
Investigating officer PC Matthew Johnston said: "This happened close to a ball park and we believe there would have been a number of people there at the time of the alleged assault that might have seen something.
"Anyone who witnessed this or has information that could assist our investigation is urged to get in touch as soon as possible."
The victim attended a nearby hospital before being transferred to London where he continues to receive treatment while the other man in the car sustained minor injuries.
