Police are appealing for witnesses.

A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: “One of the riders appeared to deliberately ride his e-scooter at the man, while the second rider punched him the face, causing him to fall against a wall and injure his arm. His glasses were also damaged.

“The offenders were both riding dark colored e-scooters, and wore dark clothing, including balaclavas. They rode off towards Albion Place.

“Officers believe Victoria Promenade would have been busy at this time of day and are therefore appealing for motorists to check their dash-cam footage in the hope that they may have captured the incident.”
