Appeal over unprovoked attack in East Ham
Police have released CCTV footage in a bid to track down the men responsible for an unprovoked attack outside an East Ham pub.
It follows an assault outside the Denmark Arms, in High Street North, that left the 34-year-old victim with a broken cheekbone.
He was standing outside on January 17 at around 12.20am when he was approached by a group of three men, aged between 20 and 40.
One of the gang (pictured) punched the victim twice in the face, causing him to fall to the floor, where he was kicked by the rest of the group.
The suspects then made off along High Street North and St John’s Road.
