KENS­ING­TON de­tec­tives are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in re­la­tion to a se­ri­ous as­sault in Bel­mont on Novem­ber 15. Around 7pm a group of four were walk­ing along Raleigh Street when a van drove past and two peo­ple in the car started yelling at the group. The van stopped nearby and two males ap­proached one of the men in the group. One of the men from the ve­hi­cle punched the vic­tim in the nose while the other kicked his legs, caus­ing him to fall to the ground. The two men then got back in the van and headed to­wards Keymer Street. The vic­tim re­ceived se­ri­ous in­juries to his an­kle and face, in­clud­ing a frac­tured cheek­bone and eye socket. The van the two men were driv­ing (pic­tured) is de­scribed as a white older style van, be­lieved to be an old box sta­tion wagon, pos­si­bly 1989-1990 model. The first man is de­scribed as be­ing dark skinned, around 200cm tall, 35-40 years old with a medium to solid build and short black hair. He was wear­ing a green T-shirt.
