A man in his 50s sustained a broken nose after he was assaulted in Sudbury, prompting a call for witnesses to come forward.

The victim reported to Suffolk Police that he had been walking home along Melford Road on Monday, May 28, some time between 7.30pm and 8.15pm, when he was stopped and confronted by another man.

The assailant then pushed the victim to the ground and attacked him by kicking him in the face, before fleeing the scene.

A member of the public, who had been driving past in their vehicle around this time, stopped to see if the victim had been injured.

As a result of the attack, the man's nose was broken and his face also suffered bruising.

Police officers looking into the incident say they are keen to speak to the driver who stopped to help, as they believe they may have information that could aid in their investigation.

Anybody who witnessed the assault or who may have any information about what happened is urged to get in touch with Suffolk Police on 101, quoting the incident reference code 29688/18.

Alternatively, you can call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555111.
