Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident in which a man was assaulted in Kintbury.

At 4.45pm on Thursday (29/10) the victim, a 55-year-old man, was standing on a canal boat moored close to Kintbury Lock when he was approached by two men who he did not know. One of the men shouted at him, pushed him to the ground and kicked him several times in the head. He sustained facial injuries and cuts to his arm as a result of the assault.  Nothing was stolen during the incident.

The offender is described as white with tanned skin, aged in his early to mid thirties, approximately 5ft 10ins, of stocky build and had dark hair with dark stubble on his face. He was wearing olive green coloured fishing overalls and was carrying a black backpack and a fishing rod at the time of the offence.
