Ambulance crews attended the scene and the victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
Detective sergeant Vicki Morris, of Epsom CID, said: "It is thought both the victim and the offender had been out socialising before the incident took place and although it is believed they are not known to one another they may have spoken to each other earlier in the evening.
"The town centre would have been busy around this time and I would appeal to anyone with information to contact officers as a matter of urgency."
Police said they are looking for a white man with dark hair.
