Police officers last night revisited the scene of a serious assault that had taken place a week earlier in a bid to gain more information about what happened.
Pedestrians and motorists where stopped in the Kings Road area and asked if they knew any information about an incident took place between 6:30pm-6:45pm as a 39-year-old man left Guilfest with his family.
As they were doing so, he gestured to a vehicle that was travelling at excessive speed so that his wife could cross the road with their child in a pushchair. As the vehicle stopped, a passenger got out of the car and started to attack the victim by head-butting him before punching him to the ground.
The 39-year-old man was taken to St. George's Hospital in Tooting and remains in a critical condition.
The offender is described as a white male possibly with tanned skin, in his late 20s to early 30s, between 5ft 10ins - 6ft 2ins tall, of medium/muscular build and short black hair. He was also wearing a light coloured top and dark jeans/joggers.
Surrey Police are also looking to trace the driver of the vehicle, which has been described as silver or white and possibly a Vauxhall model, and its occupants as well as a black 4x4 vehicle in connection with the incident.
"I am appealing to anyone who may have any information in relation to this dreadful attack to come forward and speak with officers," said Detective Sergeant Anna Leahy.
"Seven days have passed and the victim remains in a life-threatening condition and the effect on his loved ones is traumatic."
Members of the public are being urged to contact Surrey Police on 101 quoting Operation Vermillion if they have any information.
