Police are appealing for information after a man lost the sight in one eye following an assault in Thetford.

The 26-year-old was walking along Mill Lane between 10.30pm and 11.30pm on Friday 4 May 2012 when he saw three men walking towards him from Bury Road. He then recalls being injured on the floor and was able to make his way home. He later sought medical treatment and was told he had suffered a fractured eye socket and has been blinded in one eye.

Officers want to speak to anyone who was in the Mill Lane area on Friday night and may have witnessed this incident, or anyone with any information about the assault.

Calls should be made to DC Claire Fox at Thetford CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
