A 34-year-old man from Colchester was assaulted by two men around 2am and received a knife wound to his neck, foot and ear and defence wounds to his hands. He had his phone and his wallet stolen and was taken to hospital but has since been released after receiving treatment.

The man has described the attackers as both white, one aged early 40s with glasses, very tall, who had a black scruffy beard, dressed in black with a large knife and the other man was bald, of average height and was wearing a cream or white coat. They ran off and got into a silver estate car.

A scene guard has been put in place in the area.
