Police say a man has been left traumatised and with serious injuries after an attack in Redruth.

The forty-nine year old local needed hospital treatment after being kicked and punched on Tolgus Hill.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday 18th November, when the attacker knocked the victim's takeaway out of his hands.

It is not clear why police have waited until now to let locals know about the attack.

The 49-year-old victim had bought two boxes of food from a burger van outside a nightclub around 1.45am when he was approached by an unknown man and woman.
 
The man kicked one of the boxes of food out of the victim’s hand and swiped the second box to the floor. After a row with the woman he agreed to get some cash out to pay for the food.
 
On the way to the cashpoint the victim was knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked and punched around the head and body in a sustained attack.
 
The victim, who is from Redruth, suffered serious injuries and required hospital treatment for two black eyes, a mouth injury, and facial swelling and bruising.
 
Detectives are now hunting the offender who ran from the scene at Tolgus Hilll/ Foundry Row towards the town centre.
 
He is described as white, about 25, and of medium build. He had short dark hair and was wearing a shirt.
 
Police are also keen to speak to the woman who left the scene on her own in a vehicle, possibly a taxi.
 
Detective Constable Craig Daddow, of Camborne CID, said: “This was a vicious and sustained attack which left the victim traumatised and with serious facial injuries.
 
“We are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the assault to come forward. We are particularly keen to speak to the woman who was seen with the male offender.”
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact Camborne CID by telephoning 101, quoting reference AC/12/4570.
