5:11pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in News
Police have released an e-fit of a man suspected of assault at V Festival thanks to the victim's girlfriend.
A 25-year-old man was punched in the face twice near the Virgin Stage at the event in Chelmsford between 4.30pm and 5pm on Sunday, August 18.
The victim, from Wickford, walked away at the time but doctors confirmed he had suffered a broken cheek bone when he attended Basildon University Hospital the next day.
Investigating officer, Dc Alex Baker, said: "The couple had been at the cup collection point next to Our Garden when they were surrounded by a group of young men who began verbally abusing the woman.
"It was when her boyfriend asked them to stop that one of them turned on him and punched him twice in the space of a few minutes, with the second punch sending him to the floor.
"It is a very distinctive-looking e-fit and we’re confident someone out there can name him.”
The man pictured in the e-fit is described as white, is in his 20s and of toned, muscular build.
At the time of the incident he was wearing a white vest and long denim shorts.
Anyone who recognises the man or who has information about the assault is urged to contact detectives at Chelmsford police station on 101.
