A man suffered serious injuries during an attack in Cambridge on Saturday (September 29).
The man, who is in his 50s, was playing football on St Albans Road recreation ground, near the Meadows Community Centre, at around 5pm when he heard a disturbance.
Minutes later two men entered the football court and attacked him, hitting him to the head several times.
The force of the attack left the victim unconscious. He was taken to hospital and suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
The offenders were seen to approach the football court from the St Catherine’s estate and fled in the same direction. Both men are described as white and in their 20s or 30s.
DS Samuel Constable said: “I know there were many people on the recreation ground at the time of the attack, and therefore I would strongly urge any witnesses to come forward.
“I am also keen to hear from the people who provided first aid to the victim at the scene before the ambulance service arrived.”
