A partially sighted man lost his glasses after he was assaulted by two men in a Hatfield Peverel car park.

The victim, 32 and from the village, was walking through the car park behind the shops and doctors’ surgery in Hadfelda Square at 11.05pm on Friday December 19.

He was approached by the two men and, fearing they were going to hurt him, tried to push one of them away.

The victim was then hit in the face, causing him to fall to the floor and his glasses to fall off, before the suspects left the scene.

PC Danielle Twaites, investigating officer, said: “The victim lost his glasses and suffered two black eyes as a result of the incident.
