Police have made an appeal to the public after a man was assaulted in Stansted earlier this year.

The victim, who is in his 50s, was hit over the head with a pool cue in Station Road at around 8.30pm on April 22.

The incident reportedly happened following an altercation, and afterwards the man required stitches for a head injury.

The attacker was described to police as having an olive skin tone, and is thought to be around 40-years-old.

In their appeal, police also say he was also described as having short black or grey hair and being of stocky build.

The attacker was wearing a pink and black shirt the night of the incident, as well as blue chino-style trousers and blue shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Leeann Rea on 101.

Alternatively, the public can report any information to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
