A man was knocked unconscious and lost several teeth in a violent attack in Tadworth last night (Saturday, June 5).

Police released an information appeal Sunday morning in the wake of the attack, which they said took place at the junction of Acres Gardens and Marbles Way in Tadworth.

The man was walking in the area around 6.55pm when he was confronted by two men who punched him to the ground and kicked him several times in the head.

Police said that he "has lost several teeth, suffered cuts to his head and lost consciousness for several minutes" in the assault.

"The two main suspects, both believed to be White, left the location in a red BMW, possibly in company with a third man.

"An investigation is underway to identify and locate the suspects," a Surrey Police spokesperson added.

Those investigating are now appealing to the public to help, and in particular to any eyewitnesses who were in the area at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101, or by going to their website, and quoting PR/45210058483.
