Alarming CCTV footage released today by Scotland Yard shows the moment an attacker punched a man right in the face, leaving him unconscious and bleeding on the floor of a hotel in London’s Docklands.
He is then seen letting go of the 37-year-old victim’s neck, allowing him to fall onto the hotel’s front desk and then onto the floor.
Police today launched an appeal for anyone who recognises the alleged attacker to come forward after the incident, which happened just before midnight on Saturday, September 19.
A spokesman for the Met said: “The suspect is described as a white man wearing black shorts, black ankle boots, white/grey trainers, a baseball cap and a black top with a logo on the rear stating ‘No91 Criminal Damage London'”.
Anyone with any information about this man is asked to contact police on 020 8217 5039 quoting reference number 198721 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
