Michael Voller is believed to have been assaulted when other Spurs supporters mistook him for a Chelsea fan after the Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea FA Cup semi-final match on April 22.

The 23-year-old, a former Tottenham Hotspur Football Club groundsman, was admitted to hospital with serious facial injuries and continues to undergo surgery and treatment in relation to a broken eye socket, cheek bone, jaw and fractured skull sustained in the attack.

Officers have released the e-fit of a man they wish to identify in the hope that the public or fellow fans will be able to name him.

Michael was attacked while walking past the Moore Spice Indian restaurant in Engineers Way with a group of friends at around 7.30pm when he was targeted by another group.

The police believe he was mistaken for a rival Chelsea supporter and punched in the face.

The suspect is a white man in his early 20s, approximately 5ft 10ins tall who was wearing a black hooded top or jacket at the time of the attack.

A 21-year-old man arrested on May 9 on suspicion of assault was released with no further action

DC James Robb of Brent CID, the investigating officer said: “This unprovoked and cowardly attack has resulted in injuries that could affect the rest of a young man’s life.

“There is no place for this kind of violence in football or anywhere else. Someone knows who committed this unprovoked attack and I sincerely hope they do the right thing and help us place this violent individual before the courts. “

“All information that we receive is treated in the strictest confidence, but you can also remain completely anonymous by calling Crimestoppers.”

Anyone with any information regarding the attack should call Brent CID on 0208 733 3737 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
