Man and brother assaulted in unprovoked attack
A MAN and his teenage brother were punched in the face in an unprovoked attack.
The two victims, a 20-year-old man and his 15-year-old brother, were near the Westgate car park in Basildon - near the BP Roundacre garage - when they were set upon.
The thug approached the older man and hit him in the face and chest, before punching his younger brother as he tried to intervene.
The thug then ran off toward the Roundacre underpass.
Witnesses to the attack, which happened at 9am on Tuesday, can contact PC Jaworski at the Basildon area investigation team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
