A still from the CCTV footage which has been released by Thames Valley Police

Police in West Berkshire believe two men may have vital information on an assault, which took place in Lambourn.

Officers have released CCTV footage of the men they want to speak to, as they look into an incident in the Market Place area at 9.38pm on Saturday 19th October.

Officers say a man in his fifties, was walking with his daughter and her friend through Lambourn Market Place.

The victim then saw another man who seemed to be urinating against the church yard railings.

The victim spoke to the man and told him to stop and pushed him. The man who was urinating has then pushed the victim back. At this point a second man has assaulted the victim, punching him to the floor and then kicked him whilst on the ground.

The victim was taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon for treatment, and he has since been discharged.

You can watch the CCTV footage which has been released below.

Investigating officer PC Gemma Hebdon from Newbury police station said:

“We are releasing CCTV of two men who we believe may have vital information in connection with this incident which happened on the night of 19 October.

“We would ask them or anyone who recognises them to please come forward.

“At the time of this assault there were a number of people in the square as a few taxis had pulled up in the square, who we believe were coming back from a boxing event in Swindon.  We would ask anyone who has information about this assault to please get in touch.  

“We are also keen to speak to a man who came to the victim’s aid following the assault who we believe was an off duty paramedic. He was wearing a bright blue long sleeved top, light jeans/trousers and black trainers with white soles.”

Anyone with information should go online or call 101 quoting reference 43190325842.
