We have released a CCTV image of two men we would like to speak to in connection with an assault which took place in Epsom on Thursday 20 June.

The victim, a motorbike rider, was waiting at the traffic lights on High Street, at the junction with East Street, when he was assaulted and pulled from his bike shortly before 6.45pm.

Fortunately, the man didn’t suffer any injuries during the attack but was left extremely shaken after the assault.

One man is described as over 6ft tall, of a stocky build. He was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a grey t-shirt.
