Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious assault on Epsom High Street.

The assault reportedly took place around 3.20am on Sunday, June 9.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said that the assault happened after an altercation involving the splashing of water escalated into violence.

"The victim and his friend were walking towards Clocktower Cars on High Street carrying an inflatable microphone, having just left the nearby Fever and Boutique Nightclub, when they passed a group of young men.

"One of the men threw water on the victim’s friend, which led to an altercation involving the group of men.

"The victim, a man in his 20s, intervened, but was then pushed to the floor, stamped on and kicked.

Three nearby men stepped in to stop the assault... The suspects are then thought to have left on foot in the direction of Station Approach," Surrey Police said.

The police also offered descriptions of the group suspected of involvement in the assault.

They said the suspects had been described as six or seven white men and one black man, "aged between 16 and 20 years old, all wearing black Nike hooded tops..."

Following the violence the victim and his friend were taken to hospital, where they were treated for the injuries they sustained before being discharged.

While police said the principle victim's injuries were not life-threatening, they revealed the victim suffered a broken arm from the attack.

Detective Sergeant Kerry Akehurst said: "This was a violent assault where the victim was attacked by a group of men in a public place.

"We believe a number of people might have been in the area at the time and may have seen what happened.

"The victim and his friend were carrying an inflatable microphone just before they were attacked, which would have been noticeable and, we hope, will jog the memory of anyone who was in the area at the time."
