Thames Valley Police have today released an appeal for witnesses and CCTV images of a person they want to talk to regarding the fight.

During the incident a 22-year-old man was hit with a large wooden pole and sustained a broken jaw, which required serious hospital treatment.

He has since been discharged and is recovering at home.

On Thursday, January 3, a second victim approached police to tell them he had also been attacked during the fight.

The 24-year-old was also hit by a man carrying a wooden pole. He sustained two black eyes and a broken nose that may require surgery.

Police have re-released the image of the person they wish to speak to in connection with both these assaults.

The man is white, in his late teens to early twenties, and was wearing a white shirt buttoned all the way up to the collar and tucked into light-coloured jeans or trousers.

His hair is dark blond to light brown and he may have light facial hair.

Detective Constable Leanne Shepherd, investigating, said: “These were vicious attacks using great force with a weapon and could have resulted in even more serious injuries.

“There were up to 20 other people in the area at the time of the assault, including the girl in the CCTV image who was with the offender and the other man pictured.

“I am urging these people, or anyone who recognises the man in the image, to contact me via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.”
