A MAN was hit with what is believed to have been an iron bar when a group assaulted two men in Wokingham.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident took place on Saturday, March 23 at around 1am in Station Approach.

The victims, two men aged 44 and 46, were approached by the group of young men and women, who punched them.

One was hit with what could have been an iron bar before the group fled the scene.

The victims sustained injuries which required hospital treatment, but have since been discharged.

One of the offenders is a white man, around 18 or 19.

He is about 5ft 6ins to 5ft 7ins tall with a slight, wiry build and is described as having a round face with a large forehead, wearing a black baseball cap, a black hooded top and black trousers with white trainers.

Detective constable Robert-Simpson Jones, of Newbury Force CID, said: "This was a serious assault which left the victims with injuries requiring hospital treatment.

"I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this, or who has any information which they think could be relevant to our appeal.

"If you can help, please call 101, quoting reference 43190088435."
