The assault is believed to have taken place in Telford at around 8.45pm on Thursday.

The victim man, who is in his fifties, was walking along a footpath from Southwater Way in the town centre, towards Brunel Road in Malinsee, when he was approached by four men, who are believed to have walked from Coachwell Close on to the footpath.
