PUBLISHED: 17:00 02 August 2012

A man faces further surgery after he was kicked and punched during a violent robbery in Manor Park.

The 27-year-old victim was walking along Hathaway Crescent at about 1.30am on June 21 when he realised he was being followed. He turned around to see who was behind him and received a punch to the face.

A second assailant then appeared and punched him several times, causing him to fall to the floor.

While he was on the ground, both attackers kicked and punched him and searched through his clothes, fishing out his wallet, mobile phone and keys.

They then ran off along Shakespeare Crescent towards Browning Road.

After making his way home, the victim called police and paramedics and was taken by ambulance to Newham General Hospital.

He suffered a fractured nose and bruising to the body and will need to return for another operation.

The attackers are described as two black men, aged between 20 and 25, roughly 5ft 7ins to 6ft tall, wearing dark clothing and scarves around their faces. One is described as stocky and the other of medium build.

Anyone with information should contact the Newham Robbery Unit on 0208 217 5448 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
