Police would like to speak to this man after a shopper suffered a broken wrist and a fractured elbow in an unprovoked attack in East Ham.
The 45-year-old man sustained his injuries after he was pushed over by his attacker who had accused him of ‘looking at him’ while he was paying for some goods in a convenience store in High Street North.
The victim was harassed by his attacker before he was pulled across the store and pushed into the street where two men deliberately barged into him as he fell.
Several witnesses who were sitting in a car chased the three men away and came to the victim’s aid before he was rushed to hospital.
Detectives have today released a CCTV image of a man they would like to trace in connection with the attack on May 6 at around 11pm.
