The 33-year-old victim was in Winter Gardens Path at about 5.40am on August 6 when he was approached by two men. He was struck on the back of the head with a spanner before demands were made for his valuables.

They stole goods including his black rucksack, mobile phone, and two pairs of sunglasses.

The victim, who is from Canvey, suffered a cut above his right eye and another behind his left ear.

Investigating officer, Dc Luke Dangerfield, said: “This is a particularly nasty attack as the victim was set upon with a heavy-duty spanner.
