The 21-year-old victim was attacked as he walked down the High Street on Sunday at 2.45pm.

As he passed a group of four men sat drinking on the wall outside Wayland House on George Trollope Road two of the men dragged him through Goddard's Court to the Old Golf House Veterinary Practice car park, where he was head butted and stabbed in the arm with a pocket knife by one of the men.

The men then ran off towards the back of Somerfield supermarket and the victim received hospital treatment for his injuries.
