A THEATRE-goer dressed as a character from the Rocky Horror Show was jumped at a Woking cash point over the weekend.
The 27-year-old victim was left with a fractured cheek and injuries to his eye after what police described as a vicious assault.
Stopping for money in Chertsey Road after an evening performance at the New Victoria Theatre, the man was pushed by one of a group of men before being attacked by a man described as Asian in appearance.
The victim was with a female friend in the early hours of Saturday, June 29 when he was attacked.
Detective Constable Chris Woolford investigating is appealing for witnesses to contact officers as soon as possible. He said: “This was a vicious unprovoked attack on a visitor to the town who was merely enjoying an evening out when he was subjected to this violence.
“This part of Woking would have been busy with people out and about in the local clubs and bars and I urge anyone who saw the offence to call me with any details.
“You may have a crucial snippet which could help officers locate and bring this offender to justice. Surrey Police will not tolerate such violent offending in our neighbourhoods and will relentlessly pursue anyone thought to be involved in such crime.”
Borough Commander Inspector John Davies added: “Residents and visitors alike should be reassured the Safer Neighbourhood Team has dedicated patrols out at busy times in Woking town centre to provide visible community contact.
“If anyone has any specific concerns about personal safety they can contact the local Crime Reduction Officer for advice.”
Witnesses are asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference WK/13/3881.
