Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an assault in Bordon on Friday, June 18.
Sometime between 10.15pm and 10.45pm, a 29-year-old man was disturbed by a group of youths outside his home address in Birch Close.
He asked them to keep the noise down, which resulted in the group attacking the man by throwing him through a plate glass window and punching him in the head.
The man suffered serious cuts to his arm and minor head injuries and was treated at the Royal Surrey Hospital.
PC Alex Stypulkowski, from the Alton Targeted Patrol Team, said: "This was an entirely unprovoked attack which happened after the victim asked a group to keep the noise down and then they have turned on him.
"Although incidents like this are rare, this was a sustained and vicious attack which resulted in the man being thrown through a window and repeatedly punched.
"Officers were on the scene within minutes and chased the suspects but were unable to detain them as they ran off into a housing estate.
"We are conducting a number of enquiries to trace the people responsible and have extra reassurance patrols in the area.
"If anyone has any information about who is responsible for this attack, please contact us."
Anyone with any information should contact PC Stypulkowski at Alton police station on 101 or call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
