Police want to track down the victim of an affray in Newbury. 

A man was pushed to the floor and kicked by three men outside the Hand Car Wash in Faraday Road at 8.30pm on Wednesday, November 18. 

A man in his twenties intervened but was told to run by the offenders but reported the incident to the police.

The offenders are all described as white and about 5ft 9ins tall. They were all wearing long trousers and jumpers.

They had Eastern European accents.

Three men, aged 20, 31 and 49, all from Newbury, have been arrested on suspicion of affray and released on police bail until December 15.

Investigating officer, PC Angharad Synan based at Newbury police station, said: “I am appealing for the victim or anyone who knows the identity of the victim to contact police immediately. It is vitally important that we locate the victim in order to ensure he is ok and to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information to contact us by visiting your nearest police station or by calling 101.
