Police officers are urgently trying to trace a man after a 16-year-old Brent boy was assaulted at Canons Park London Underground station.
CCTV images have been released of a man officers believe will be able to help them with enquiries into the incident, which took place on Thursday, 23 October.
DC Alban Barnes, leading the investigation, said: “At about 6pm, the victim was walking out of the station, heading to football practice, when a man approached him. Without warning, the man punched the boy to the ground, and then walked away.
“This was a nasty and seemingly unprovoked attack which left the boy with a black eye and bloody nose. It has also had a lasting emotional impact on the young man; affecting his confidence when travelling on public transport alone.
“I am determined to find the person responsible and bring him to justice before the courts.”
