A WORCESTER man has been left shaken after being verbally and physically assaulted in Warndon Villages.

The victim, in his 50s, was walking a dog with a teenage boy when a man approached them in the woods between Barass Avenue and Trotshill Way, at around 4.10pm on Sunday, June 11.

A verbal altercation broke out and the attacker is understood to have poked the man in his 50s a number of times in the chest before walking away.

The victim did not suffer any serious injuries but was left shaken by the incident.

The man is described as white, in his 40s, with a tanned complexion and dark hair, which was receding slightly and going grey on the sides.

He is thought to have spoken with a local accent and was dressed smartly in a black shirt and dark trousers, and was wearing gold-rimmed glasses.

Enquiries are currently ongoing but officers are keen for anyone who saw the assault, who witnessed anyone acting suspiciously or who was in the area at the time of the incident to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 473S of June 11.
