Teenager arrested after man coshed outside Charlies Wine Bar yesterday evening

A have-a-go hero who tried to stop an alleged robber from taking a man’s bike was left with gashes to his head and a dislocated finger after the suspect turned his attack on him.

The victim, 34, spotted the suspect trying to rob a man of his bicycle outside Charlies Wine Bar at Neasden Circle, yesterday (Sunday) at around 6.25pm.

Officers spotted the group fleeing the scene and gave chase – catching and arresting a 19-year-old male nearby.

Police then found the victim lying on the floor and bleeding heavily from his head. Ambulance crews treated him at the scene as he refused to go to hospital.

A 19-year-old was arrested on suspicion of GBH and attempted robbery. He remains in custody.
