Police are appealing for witnesses

At around 11.45pm on March 2, a 25-year-old man was walking on Penryn Avenue (between Porthleven Place and Pencarrow Place) when he was stopped by three unknown men.

The men asked him if he had a phone on him, and when the victim declined, they knocked him to the ground and kicked him to the body and face.

The victim sustained a fractured eye socket and extensive bruising, which required medical treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital.

Nothing was stolen from him.

The offenders are believed to have spoken with local accents.

Investigating officer PC Joseph Swan, said: “This was an assault which has left the victim with serious injuries, and a thorough investigation is now underway to identify and locate the offenders.

“I am appealing to anyone who witnessed this incident, or saw a group of men near the takeaway around the time of the offence, to please come forward. This includes any residents in Penryn Avenue who may have seen or heard anything suspicious.

“If you have any information about the incident, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, please call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.

“Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
