Detectives are pleading for witnesses to come forward after a 44-year-old man was assaulted in Shenfield receiving skull fractures and bleeding on the brain.

Essex Police are yet to make any arrests so investigating officer Det Con Stephen Baker has released the latest CCTV images of suspected witnesses to the July 20 attack.

The local man had been out for the evening and went to the Rayleigh Road, Shenfield, to purchase some cigarettes in the early hours of the Sunday.

As he exited the shop he was surrounded by a group of teenagers who set about attacking him.

The victim went home following the assault and felt reluctant to complain to the police at the time.

But when he went to hospital two days later he found he had fractures to his head and a bleed on the brain. He then reported the incident.

Police wish to stress that the people caught on CCTV are not believed to be the attackers.

Det Con Baker said: “I am very eager to hear from these witnesses who may be able to provide vital information to identify the suspects.”

If you have any information contact Det Con Baker at Loughton police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
