A 59-year-old man was punched in the face after he asked a group of teenagers to stop messing around on push bikes.

Redbridge police are appealing for witnesses to the incident on May 20, which saw the victim surrounded by four youths.

The man left the Panjabi Centre in Ley Street, Ilford, at approximately 9.50pm and made his way to Carriage Mews, where he had parked his car.

He got into his vehicle and drove to the junction of Ley Street, but decided to get out and ask the teenagers, thought to be aged between 16 and 17, what they were doing.

The victim said he was surrounded by the group immediately and punched on the forehead by one of the teenagers, causing him to fall to the ground.

He believes he may have passed out as the next thing he knew he was inside an ambulance and it is thought he also hit his face on the pavement.

The victim received treatment for cuts to his forehead and bruising to his face at Whipps Cross Hospital.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to get in touch with Pc Mohammed Chowdhury from the Newbury neighbourhood policing team, by calling 101.
