Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault which took place in Chelmsford.

The incident happened in Chelmsford High Street at around 12am on August 9.

The victim, a 20-year-old local man, was attacked from behind with what is believed to be a bottle, which left him with cuts and bruises to his head and arms.

Pc Chloe Lingane, of Chelmsford police station, said: “At this time we have not been able to establish any reason as to why the victim was attacked or any events leading up to the assault. This happened on a busy road and I am hopeful that passers-by may have seen what happened. Two women came to the aid of the victim and I am keen to speak to them about whether they witnessed anything. If anyone has any information that could assist our investigation I would ask them to call me at Chelmsford police station on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
