A 56 year old man has been attacked on his doorstep in Leighton Buzzard.

Two men knocked on the front door of his home on Chestnut Hill between a 12.45 and 01:08 last Tuesday morning (August 6th)
They verified the victim's identity before assaulting him. 
He suffered facial bruising and a cut to his nose before the men left the scene.
PC Lucy Austin, is keen to trace anyone who saw the two men in the Chestnut Hill area, late on Monday night or during the early hours of Tuesday morning:
"Both the men were white, spoke with Irish accents and wore dark tops and jeans. The first was 6 feet  tall and approximately 35 years old and the second was 5 feet 7 tall and approximately 20 years old. 
"We are keeping an open mind as to why this assault happened and are appealing to anyone who was in the area that night to come forward if they saw two men matching these descriptions."
