Man had teeth kicked out and shoe print stamped into forehead as he walked home
A man was left with a shoe print on his forehead after he was brutally attacked by two men he had never met before.
Peter Hancox was heading home from a New Years Eve party in Chartham, Kent, when he was approached by the duo.
The 52-year-old said the pair then started punching and kicking him.
He was left with horrific injuries after the incident, which took place around 4.30am on New Years Day, including a black eye and a number of missing teeth.
Police have now launched an appeal to find those responsible for the ‘totally unprovoked attack’.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Tom Banks said: ‘The victim was walking alone along Updown Way towards Beech Avenue when two men approached him and started punching and kicking him in what appears to be a totally unprovoked attack.
‘The victim lost teeth and suffered a black eye and a swollen and bruised cheek in the assault.’
Detective Constable Banks is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to call police.
Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference number ZY/000074/18.
