Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man was stabbed in Billericay on Monday 14 September.
We were called around 8.30pm with reports that a man had been injured after he was stabbed on Outwood Common Road, near to St. John's Church.
The suspect was described as a black man, who was around 6ft tall and was wearing a black tracksuit.
The victim, who is aged in his 20s, is being treated for injuries which were considered serious, but thankfully not life-changing.
Whilst we're keeping an open mind as to the motive of this assault, detectives think that it's unlikely it was random.
Nevertheless, we will have local officers patrolling in the area, so if you have any concerns or information, please come and speak with us.
We'd like to hear from anyone who was in the area around the time and witnessed any suspicious behaviour or a man matching this description.
We're also keen to speak to those who live in the area and have doorbell, CCTV or dash cam footage.
Alternatively you can call 101 or contact independent charity Crimestoppers completely anonymously.
