Newham Borough detectives have released CCTV footage of a man allegedly launching an “unprovoked” attack on a customer in an east London chicken shop.
Police were called at approximately 9pm on Wednesday 27 July to a report of an assault at a Papa’s Chicken in High Street North, Newham.
CCTV shows the moment the victim pays for some food and turns to leave. As he turns, he brushes shoulders with the suspect who starts to shout and argue with him.
The suspect then attacks the victim. The victim suffered cuts to his head and eye lids as well as a bruised jaw after being hit over the head with a chair.
Later, the suspect ran off along Milton Avenue. He returned to the rear of the shop armed with a knife and left upon police arrival.
Police attended and found a 25-year-old man being treated by London Ambulance Service.
Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the man in the white shirt or who witnessed the assault.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
