A man was punched in the face and head during an unprovoked attack in Stoke Park, Guildford on Friday night (September 22). The assault took place between 10.15 and 10.30pm.

The victim and his friend were walking home when they were confronted by a group of between 10 and 15 men and women. The group threw items at the victim’s friend before one of the group attacked the victim, punching him in the face and head.

The victim was left with a serious cut near his eye and it is believed the attacker was wearing a number of rings or a knuckle-duster. The group of suspects all appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s and were wearing hooded tops and dark clothing.

PC James Fraser, who is investigating the incident, said: “This was an unprovoked and violent attack on an innocent member of the public. The victim has sustained an injury very close to his eye socket, which could have been life-changing. He has also been left extremely shaken and distressed following the attack.

“I am appealing to anyone who saw what happened, or who has any other information, to come forward and assist us with this investigation.”

A police spokesperson said: “If you can help, please contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting crime reference number 45170104753 or by using

“Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
