Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an altercation in Hitchin.

On Saturday 9 October, between 2.30am and 3am, the victim was in the Market Place when he was approached by a group of men.

It was reported that they pushed him to the floor, before kicking him repeatedly.

PC Mark Shaw, who is investigating, said: “This was entirely unprovoked, and understandably the victim has been left shaken up following the incident. Thankfully, he did not sustain any serious injuries.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who has any information about what happened, to get in touch as soon as possible. Any information, even if it may seem relatively minor or insignificant, could be key to progressing our investigation.”

Anyone with information can contact PC Shaw directly via email at mark.shaw@herts.police.uk.
