Witness appeal following assault in Godalming
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses after an assault in Godalming in the early hours of Saturday morning (28 August).
Officers were called to the Phillips Memorial Park in Godalming at around 1:40am on Saturday following reports a man had been assaulted.
At around 10:30pm on Friday (27 August) a group of people arrived at the Phillips Memorial Cloister where they were seen drinking and playing music. The victim refused a beer from one of the suspects and around two hours later glass bottles were thrown at the wall above where the victim was sleeping. The suspect shouted abuse and then walked away. Shortly afterwards the victim encountered the first suspect and another man on Borough Road, where he was punched and kicked.
The victim was taken to hospital and sustained injuries, including a slight fracture to one of his ribs.
The suspects are described as White and one was wearing a grey Parka coat.
We are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time or witnessed the assault to get in touch. If you have any information, please contact us quoting PR/45210090907.
