A MAN was repeatedly punched in the head and kicked by a gang of four men.

The 20-year-old victim was walking along the old railway track opposite the sewage works when the attempted robbery and assault happened last night at 5.45pm.

As he came level with the sewage works he saw a group of four men coming out from a wooded area.

They surrounded him, asked his name and told him to give them what he had on him. He replied that he had nothing.

He then felt a tug on his coat, turned around and was punched in the face and around the head.

After several more punches he fell to the floor and was kicked. He managed to get up and run away.

Nothing was stolen but he was left the a cut above his eye, which needed stitches at hospital, and a swollen face and bruising.

One of the men was white, aged 20 to 22, around 6ft 2ins, of stocky build and wore Adidas tracksuit bottoms and a matching hooded top.

The second was mixed race, around 6ft tall, of slim build, aged between 20 and 22. He was wearing a black puffa style body warmer and a black long-sleeved top underneath.

The other two men were white and between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call Pc Robert Bunton at Haverhill Police 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
