A man was punched and kicked in a Tunbridge Wells park by a trio of men before managing to escape.
The victim suffered serious injuries to his face, which required specialist treatment following the night time attack in Calverley Grounds.
Police investigating the incident have now released CCTV images of three people they are keen to speak to, who they believe may be able to assist them.
A man in his 20s was walking along Mount Pleasant Road when he was approached and verbally abused by three young men at around 11.35pm on Sunday, August 15.
He was then followed into Calverley Grounds, where the trio are reported to have punched and kicked him before going through his pockets and removing a lighter and tobacco.
The victim managed to run away and alert the police but suffered serious facial injuries in the incident.
Inquiries are ongoing and anyone who recognises the people in the pictures is urged to call the appeal line on 01795 419119 quoting reference 46/148991/21.
