We are appealing for witnesses after an elderly man was hit with a water bottle in Woking on Monday, 4 September.
Officers were made aware of the incident that took place at around 6.45pm when the elderly victim was walking along Beldam Bridge Road in West End. A group of teenagers approached the victim and shouted abusive language before throwing a water bottle at him.
Investigating Officer, Sergeant Johnny Harris, of the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "This was an unprovoked attack on a defenceless elderly man. We will not tolerate this sort of behaviour in our community and urge people to come forward if they have any information that might help us identify those involved."
