Grays: Man Attacked Over Cigarette

A man's been attacked after he was threatened by two men who forced him to hand over a cigarette in Grays.

It happened when a 41-year-old man was walking through Grays Park off Bedford Road shortly before 9am on Monday, March 26th. 

He was approached by two men who asked him for a cigarette. When he refused, they threatened him with violence, forcing the man to hand over a cigarette. When he did, he was punched in the face anyway. The attackers both walked off towards Clarence Road.

Investigating Officer, Dc Emma Henderson, said: "This man was walking to walk when this attack happened in clear daylight. The efit is fairly distinctive so we're hoping someone can give us the name of the individual so that we can arrest him and at the same time identify his friend arrest him too."

The offender in the efit is described as being of mixed heritage, in his early 20s, has short black hair, dark eyes, is of slim build and is approximately six foot tall.

Anyone with information in connection with this robbery is urged to contact detectives at Grays police station on 101.
