A man was assaulted by a group as he walked home from a night out in Kingswood yesterday (Sunday February 17).

A police spokesman said: "At 3.30am the victim left Chasers and walked along Regent Street and High Street towards Warmley. As he reached the junction with Park Road he saw a group of ten people wearing hooded tops.

"One person punched the victim while another tried to steal his mobile phone. The victim was able to get away before they took anything.

"The matter was reported to us that day and an investigation is underway. We would like to hear from anyone else who was in the area and saw the group responsible for the incident. Three members of the group were seen to have bicycles with them."

Anyone who witnessed the assault or knows the people responsible should contact DC Tracey Ormand on 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

    @Coles Stephen said via Facebook: "Where oh where were the Police when this happened????Kingswood is fast becoming a no go area Why because theres rare sightings of the Police some one has to do something to improve this and dont say lack of funds we dont want this or any other crime in Kingswood.It was a lot better place when we had a Police station not much but safer than now."
