Police are hunting for a ‘skinny’ man who violently attacked another man in Henlow – leaving the victim in hospital with a serious leg injury and facial injuries.

At around 12.50pm on Friday a verbal dispute between two men on a footpath between Orchard Way and Plum Tree Road led to the violent assault.

Officers want to speak to a man described as white, in his late 20s, skinny and wearing dark tracksuit bottoms with a light grey top.

Det Con Paul Breed said: “We would be keen to hear from anyone with any knowledge of this vicious incident which left a man requiring hospital treatment for his injuries.

“Anyone who was in the area at the time is asked to contact me so that we can trace the person responsible.”
