Man wanted over assault in Old Harlow

Update: 1800 hrs

DETECTIVES, investigating a serious assault in which a man suffered injuries to his face and hands, are looking to trace a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

The incident happened between Market Street and the Seeleys between 9.45pm and 9.50pm on Friday, June 29.

The victim saw a fight taking place between a group of men in the street outside the Marquis of Granby pub on Market Street.

One of the men who had originally been fighting then ran at the victim. As the victim moved away from the fight, a number of men, believed to have been involved in the original disturbance, followed him and assaulted him. We believe that the men then left the scene in a car.

The victim was taken to hospital with injuries to his face and hands and he is now recovering at home.

The man we are looking to speak to is described as slim, white, with short blond hair. T
