A man has been attacked with what is believed to be a firework in Maidenhead.

Police have released CCTV images of two men they want to speak to as they may have vital information about the unprovoked attack on two 18-year-old men.

Around 11pm on Thursday 22nd October the victims were walking along King Street. As they walked through an underpass in Kidwell’s Park, two men approached them and one set off a firework or a sparkler which hit the victim in his face.

As the offenders ran off, one of them waved a knife and made threatening gesture towards the victims.

This was an unprovoked attack on two innocent members of the public who were making their way through the park. The offence has left the victims feeling scared and fearing for their own welfare.

Offences involving fireworks or any kind of explosive can cause serious harm and the victim is lucky to have escaped with no serious injuries.

The police take all crimes involving knives extremely seriously and would like to speak to the men in the CCTV images as they might have vital information about the incident that can aid our investigation.”
