THE wife of a Kemsing man who witnessed him being kicked around 30 times in an unprovoked assault has helped police create a picture of his attacker.
The 51-year-old victim was waiting to be collected by after a night out in the village when he was approached by another man, in his late 20s or early 30s, from the direction of Childsbridge Lane.
When his wife pulled up in her car outside the Kemsing Motor Company in West End, she screamed as she witnessed the younger man repeatedly kick her husband on the ground.
During the assault the attacker also threatened her, she said, before he left in the direction of the High Street when police were called.
The victim suffered serious injuries but is now out of hospital and recovering at home after the incident on February 23, which happened at around 11.20pm.
Now his wife has worked with police officers to produce and e-the fit of the attacker, in the hope of catching him.
He is described as being 6ft tall and having slightly olive-coloured skin.
He was wearing a mid-length black jacket or winter coat with a drawstring at the waist.
Kent Police has carried out house-to-house enquires, gathered forensic evidence from the scene of the assault and spoken to witnesses.
Officers are currently reviewing CCTV footage but are keen for anyone who recognises the man from his picture to contact them.
DC Lynda Birch, who is leading the investigation, said: "This was an unprovoked attack which caused the victim several fractures and broken bones.
"He is still having ongoing treatment for his injuries.
"Hopefully, by releasing this e-fit, someone can out a name to the face."
Anyone with information should contact Kent Police on 101, quoting crime report YY/3624 of February 23, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
