POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was knocked unconscious in an unprovoked attack in Woking.
The victim was sitting on a wall in Albion Square when he was punched in the face by an unknown suspect, causing him to fall over backwards.
The fall left the victim unconscious near the train station at around 3am on August 5.
He also suffered a fractured cheek bone and nose in the assault.
The man was later found by officers with heavy bruising and swelling to his face and a cut to his right eye.
He was taken to the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and underwent surgery for his injuries.
Detective Constable Richard Cooper, who is investigating the incident, said: “This appears to have been a completely unprovoked attack and has left the victim with significant facial injuries from which he is still recovering.
“We have spoken to a number of witnesses already but are hoping that someone who knows the offender may come forward and tell us who he is so he can be brought to justice.”
The offender is described as white male, in his 20s, 6ft1 to 6ft 2 tall, of medium build with short brown hair.
He was wearing a white polo striped shirt and blue jeans.
If you can help, please contact DC Cooper on 101, quoting crime reference WK/12/4680, or, if you do not wish to leave your name, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
