A man has been left with serious head injuries after an assault in Guildford town centre early on Saturday morning.

He was assaulted on Park Street, close to the Guildford Charcoal Grill, at around 02:20 on October 12 following a dispute around a pre-booked taxi.

One man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Surrey Police want to speak with anyone who might have witnessed what happened, or who can help identify those involved.

DCI Mark Chapman, who is overseeing the investigation said:

"As the attack took place as people were leaving the town centre after their nights out, somebody may well have seen what happened.

"Due to the location of this incident, on the one-way system, we are asking drivers of taxis and private vehicles with dashcams to come forward if you were driving past the area between 02:15 and 02:30 as you may have captured footage without necessarily being aware of the assault itself.”

Anyone who can assist police is asked to call 101, quoting crime reference number PR/ 45190108025.

If you do not wish to leave your name, you can ca;; the independent charity Crimestoppers instead on 0800 555 111.
