Detectives release image of injuries sustained by man on New Year’s Day
Detectives investigating a violent unprovoked bottle attack which left a man with permanent facial scars have released an image of his injuries in a renewed appeal.
The 24-year-old victim suffered two cuts above his right eye and one to the bridge of his nose following the vicious assault which took place on New Year’s Day on a westbound Piccadilly line train as it travelled between Sudbury Town and Sudbury Hill station.
The man, who lives in Harrow, was returning home after celebrating the New Year with friends when a man travelling with four friends smashed a green bottle over the right side of his face.
The victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I’ve not only been left with a permanent scar from that night but I’m also living with the mental scar.
“I just want justice for what happened to me and to make sure nothing like this happens to anyone else.”
An earlier appeal yielded no new leads so officers from British transport Police the graphic image of the victim’s injuries might encourage witness to come forward.
