City of London police have released harrowing footage of a gang of young Asian men carrying out a vicious attack on a lone man near Tower Bridge.
The footage shows the 29-year-old man walking along the bridge from the south after a friend’s wedding when he is suddenly pounced on by the group – some of whom arrive in bicycles.
He was left with cuts and bruises after the men attacked him for approximately one minute.
Police officials say members of the gang appear to be in their late teens to early 20’s and spoke with East London accents.
PC Oliver Gent from the City of London police said: “It is paramount that we catch those responsible as the group’s next victim might end up with very serious injuries.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact City of London Police on 020 7601 2222 or anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
