Police investigating the stabbing of a man in Colchester have today released an image of a man they are looking for.

A 23-year-old man was attacked by two black men in Porters Lane at about 8pm on Wednesday, April 25.

The two men were in a five-door Volkswagen Golf. The 23-year-old suffered injuries to his upper body which required medical treatment and he was later released from hospital.

The e-fit image is a likeness of one of the men involved. He is black, between 25 and 30-years-old, of medium build, about 5ft 11ins, with short black hair and a beard.

The other man is black, about 24-25 years ol, of slim to medium build, about 5ft 10ins tall, with black shoulder-length dreadlocks.

Police are appealing for anyone who recognises the man, or anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the area on April 25, to contact Essex Police on 101.
