A MAN’s leg was broken in a ‘frightening’ and unprovoked attack in Evesham last night (Friday).

The victim, a man in his thirties, was walking along Burford Road at about 10pm when two men approached him.

One of the men asked him for a cigarette and when the victim refused an altercation then took place. The victim ran from the scene but was chased by the men who continued to assault him.

The victim suffered a broken leg and facial injuries as a result of the attack.

West Mercia Police, who are now appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward, have described the two men as white, around 6″2 tall, of medium build and both with short dark hair.

One of the men was also wearing a blue top; the other was wearing a black jumper.

Detective Inspector Justin Taylor said: “This was a frightening and unprovoked attack, and we are doing all we can to trace those responsible.

“We would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call 101 quoting incident number 729 of 25th March.

“Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or visiting the Crimestoppers website.
