A GOOD Samaritan who came to the rescue of a man who was viciously attacked in the town centre is being urged to get in touch with police.

A man from Birmingham who was out for the night after doing some work in Gravesend was attacked in the New Road and High Street area of Gravesend between 3.45 and 4.30am on Sunday, November 9. He was left needing surgery for a fractured eye socket and nose after one of a group of young men attacked him when he asked them where he could get some food. A second man, who is possibly called Nick, helped the victim and arranged for a taxi to take him to hospital for treatment and is being urged by police to contact them.

Detective Sergeant Samuel Hudson-Gool is in charge of the investigation.

He said: "We need to speak to the person who helped the victim as they may have vital information which will help with our investigation into what was a very nasty and unprovoked attack.

"It is also possible that other people leaving venues in the town centre were around at the time and may have witnessed the assault."

The attacker was white, in his mid 20s and 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in tall. He had short dark hair and was wearing a white top.

If you have information which may help police, call Det Sgt Hudson-Gool at North Kent Police Station on 01474 366098 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
