Detectives investigating a serious assault outside a pub in east London have released an image and CCTV footage of a man they want to trace.
The victim, a 31-year-old man, suffered serious head injuries after being assaulted by an unknown suspect in Station Parade, Barking at around 11:15pm on Friday, 6 April.
As he fell to the floor after being hit, the victim’s head struck the pavement. He sustained a fractured skull and bleed to the brain, and required treatment at an east London hospital.
He has since been discharged but still suffers a number of side effects as a result of the attack, including recurrent headaches.
Officers from East Area Command Unit CID have now released an image and CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to in connection with the attack, and want anyone who knows who he is to contact police.
No arrest has yet been made in connection with the incident.
The man is described as of Eastern European appearance in his mid-20s. He is around 5ft 5in tall, and with short, dark-coloured hair.
He was wearing a bomber-style jacket with light-coloured arms, a grey zip-up top, blue jeans and black trainers.
If you recognise the man in the picture or have any information about the assault, please call 101 quoting CAD 8944/6APR, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
