TWO men are wanted for questioning after a high street attack.

CCTV images have been released of men sought in connection with an incident where a substance was sprayed in a man's face.

Police were called shortly before 12.20pm on Friday to reports that five people were feeling unwell after a container, which we believe may have contained CS or pepper spray, was discharged inside The Mall, High Street, Grays.

Police are now treating this as a targeted attack after a man was seen on CCTV spraying the substance towards one victim.

The victim and suspect continue to remain unidentified and police are making enquiries to locate them.

Anyone with information should call Grays CID on 101 quoting incident 499 of 06/12 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
