A man was assaulted by two men near the Marks and Spencer in High Road between 11.20pm and 11.50pm on Saturday, 5 November.
The victim, aged 33, was walking with his friend when they were approached by the two attackers who were coming from Cranbrook Road.
He was pushed to the floor and repeatedly kicked and punched. The attackers also used a bicycle and a nearby storage crate to beat him.

An ambulance was called to the scene and the victim was taken to hospital with a significant head injury. He has since recovered from the wound.
The two suspects left the scene and headed towards Seven Kings.
“This was a seemingly unprovoked attack which left the victim needing hospital attention for a serious head injury, which could have been much worse,” said Detective Constable Danielle Adams.
“Thankfully the victim has not been left with any long term medical issues as a result of this attack.
“I would ask everyone to have a good look at this footage, do you recognise either of these men? If you do, or if you witnessed anything that night, please get in touch with police as soon as possible.”
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
Anyone who can help police should call 101 or tweet @MetCC, quoting CAD9770/05NOV20.
