Man slashed across face at house in Jaywick, Essex

A 30-year-old man has been slashed across the face at a house in Essex.

The attack happened in Riley Avenue, Jaywick, in the early hours of Friday. Det Con Cara McCulloch said several people were in the house at the time, after which a number of men drove off.

"They are obviously key witnesses who can help us establish the circumstances surrounding this assault," she said.

The man was taken to Colchester General Hospital for treatment, where he is said to be in a stable condition.
