Thames Valley Police is releasing an E-fit image of a man officers would like to speak to in connection with an assault in High Wycombe.

At around 2am on Saturday 22 December 2018, the victim, a 19-year-old man, was parked on Rectory Avenue.

As he got out of his car, a silver Vauxhall Astra pulled up alongside and two unknown Asian men began engaging in aggressive conversation with the victim.

The men got out of the car and proceeded to attack the victim, punching and kicking him to the head.

Other men joined the attack before they got back into the Astra and drove off in the direction of Lucas Road.

The victim suffered a broken eye socket and bruises and cuts around the face and head.

He was treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital for his injuries and has since been discharged.

Officers are releasing this E-fit image of a man who may have vital information about this incident.

He is described as an Asian man, slim build, around 5ft 10ins tall with black slicked-back hair with skin-faded sides. He was wearing a light grey tracksuit.

The second man is described as Asian, with a larger build. He was around 5ft 10ins all, had black hair and a black beard. He was wearing a light blue tracksuit.

Investigating officer PC Annabel Wilmot, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “This was a particularly unpleasant and unprovoked attack that left the victim requiring treatment in hospital.

“We are releasing this E-Fit image and hope that somebody will recognise the man depicted.
