A man was put in a headlock and repeatedly kicked in Marlow High Street in the early hours of the morning.

The 40-year-old stopped his car in front of a group of males in the High Street, outside the Duke of Clarence pub, at around 1am on November 13.

The group then started to bang on his windows and the bonnet of the car, so he got out to ask them what they were doing.

One of the group then put the man in a headlock and wrestled him to the ground before the other three males repeatedly kicked him.

He was left with cuts on his face and head and a swollen eye and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police are investigating the attack and want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time.

They have arrested three teenagers, two aged 18 and one aged 19.

Investigating officer PC Sophie Hill, based at High Wycombe police station said: “This assault caused the victim injuries which needed hospital treatment. He will also need further treatment going forward.

“I am appealing for anyone who saw this offence to come forward. If you have any information which you think could help our investigation, please call us on 101, quoting reference number 43210513035.
