City of London police have released CCTV footage of a vicious and unprovoked attack on a 29-year-old man crossing Tower Bridge.
The victim was making his way back from a friend’s wedding on Sunday, May 31, at approximately 10pm, when he was suddenly assaulted by a group of 10 to 12 young men.
As the group walked past one of them punched the victim in the back of the head and, as he fell to the ground, the other men joined in and kicked him in the head several times.
The men are described as being in their mid-to-late teens or early 20’s and of an Asian background.
They spoke with east London accents and were dressed in hooded tops, jackets and tracksuit bottoms.
Two of the men were riding on TfL hire bikes.
City of London Police’s PC Oliver Gent said: “A group of young men carried out a vicious, cowardly and unprovoked attack on a lone male minding his own business.
“The victim suffered several blows to the head and body and was lucky to walk away with only cuts and bruises.
“It is paramount that we catch those responsible as the group’s next victim might end up with very serious injuries.
“If you were on Tower Bridge during the time of the attack or recognise any of these men from the CCTV footage, please contact us.”
Witnesses should call 020 7601 2222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 with any information.
