Hunt for vicious street attack pair

A MAN was kicked in the face and head while he was lying on the ground after being set upon by two men in a Kent town.

The attack took place while the 43-year-old victim was walking up Highfield Road, Willesborough, near Ashford, at around 12.45am on Saturday.

One of the offenders asked him for the time before he was pushed to the ground and attacked by both men. He handed over his wallet to the pair, who then ran off..

The victim suffered a stress fracture to his eye socket and a possible broken nose, as well as severe bruising to his face and upper body, during the assault and was taken to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.

The attackers are described as white, aged in their late 20s or early 30s and of medium build. Both spoke with southern accents.

PC Matt Cook said: "This was a vicious attack and I am anxious to speak to anyone who has information about this incident."

Anyone who can help is urged to contact police on 01303 289180 or Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
