Police on the hunt for man following assault in Grays

First published in News

DETECTIVES are appealing for information on a man in connection to an assault.

On Thursday, July 28, a man and woman were walking along London Road, in Grays, opposite the DAF Trucks site when a black man became involved in a fight with them.

The 26-year-old man from Ockendon suffered a small cut to his hand and bruising – he declined treatment from the Ambulance service and went home.

The woman, aged 20 from Grays, had been struck with a brick on the head.

She later became unwell and was treated in hospital for a bleed on the brain.

Police enquiries have not been able to identify the suspect. He is described as 5ft 7 inches tall, slim build, short afro style hair, shaved on the sides and bigger on top and with a well kept bushy beard.

He was wearing dark jeans and a blue jumper with cream swirls. He also wore a black leather belt with a square belt buckle, which he used during the assault.

Anyone who can identify the man responsible is urged to contact Dc Nicola Hadfield at Grays CID on 101.

This is the short straw grays is now becoming a no go area after dark it will only get worse Thurrock is now becoming. A outer suburb of London and street crime will get worse a lot worse whether this is a direct result of immigration laws is up to the electorate to decide

Having grown up in the ghetto's of Inner London I thought Thurrock was a refreshing change but then it all changed around 10-15 years ago when Inner London started moving into the area. If you want to see the future of the borough then I suggest you visit the Inner London ghetto's at night and then decide if you want to stay in the area.
