A man has suffered a fractured jaw after he was assaulted in Loughton.

The 29-year-old was in an alleyway known as "Great Eastern Path" leading between the tube station and Roding Gardens at about 5.30pm on Saturday 21 December, when he heard a man and a woman arguing.

He approached the pair, before the man punched him to the right side of his face.

The victim, who is from the Loughton area, was taken to hospital where he had to have a steel plate inserted and a wisdom tooth removed.

The suspect is described as a white man, about 5ft 8ins tall, wearing sports clothing.

Investigating officer, Pc James Smith, said: "This blow has caused some very severe injuries to the victim, and a metal plate has now had to be inserted into his jaw.

"I really need to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this assault or who may have information about who is responsible."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Pc Smith, or his colleagues at Loughton CID, on 101. Alternatively, call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
