CCTV footage has been released after an assault outside a Nandos restaurant in Epsom left the victim with a broken jaw and nose.

Surrey Police who released the image said the attack took place on Waterloo Road in Epsom, December 21, between 1.10am and 1.20am.

They're hoping to speak with the man shown in the image.

"The victim suffered a broken jaw and nose after being attacked on the pavement next to an alleyway at the side of Nandos.

"The man in the CCTV is described as being white, early to mid 20s, with dark hair and approximately 5ft 9 or 10 inches tall. He was wearing dark clothing," a spokesperson for the county police force described.

Police are continuing to investigate who is responsible for the attack, having previously arrested a 19 year-old from Epsom in January.

He was taken in "on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, and possession a psychoactive substance with intent to supply after being found with 106 NOS canisters," police said.

"He has since been released on bail. This is not the man in the CCTV images," a spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, investigating officer Detective Sergeant Patrick McCann stressed the likelihood that there were other witnesses to the attack and urged them to help police catch whoever was responsible.

"This assault has left the victim with serious facial injuries on the weekend before Christmas," he said.

"We know there were a large number of people in the area at the time but have not had any witnesses come forward.

“We know that someone must have seen what happened and will also know who the man is in these images.

"Please do the right thing and come forward if this is you and help our investigation," McCann said.

Anyone with any information should contact Surrey Police on 101 and quote the reference number PR/45200000609.
