A man was knocked unconscious in an unprovoked late-night attack in St Neots town centre.

The 31 year old was punched to the ground in the High Street, near Market Square, after being approached by a man at about 2am on Sunday (June 8).

The attacker, who ran off, is described as white, aged 40 to 45, with short cropped hair. He was wearing a long-sleeved grey top, blue jeans and white trainers.

An ambulance was called and the victim was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.

Detective Constable Kevin Hills, investigating, said: “This was a nasty, unprovoked attack.

“It is lucky that the victim was not more seriously injured and I would urge anyone who saw what happened, or knows who is responsible, to call police.”

INFORMATION: To help police with their inquiries, call DC Hills on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
