Shopper blinded in horrific Plaistow attack
A man has lost an eye in a vicious and unprovoked late-night attack in a Plaistow supermarket.
The 48-year-old victim was attacked by three men as he was browsing the shelves of the Food & Wine shop on Barking Road.
The suspects, a black man and two Asian men, then fled the scene.
The victim was taken to hospital with a serious facial injury. He was later transferred to the Moorefield eye hospital where he underwent surgery but he has permanently lost his sight in his left eye.
Though out of hospital he is recuperating.
