A man in his 50s suffered a lost tooth and cut nose following an attack by more than half a dozen young people.
The victim of the assault, aged in his 50s, was approached by "a group of six or seven young people" as he was in his car on Wharton Street in Bungay, Suffolk.
Shortly before 8.35pm on Friday, January 31, the group approached the man and "began shouting at him and hitting his car".
The man then got out of his car and asked the group what they were doing, before they assaulted him and ran away in the direction of St John Road.
