A man was taken to hospital last week after being punched in the face, prompting a police appeal for witnesses.

The assault occurred between 4.50pm and 5pm on Wednesday, October 23, when the victim, a 25-year-old man, was walking along Fairlands Way in Stevenage with a friend.

As the pair crossed into Pacation Way a red car drove past them and someone within the vehicle shouted at them.

The car passed them before turning around and pulled up alongside them. A man got out from the passenger seat and spoke to the two men before punching the victim in the jaw.

The injured man required hospital treatment.
