Theft and serious assault: do you recognise these men?
City of London Police is keen to track down two men who stole from a driver and then seriously assaulted him with a bottle. Investigating officers are now releasing CCTV footage of the suspects hoping that someone will recognise them.
Earlier this year on Sunday 10th February, at about 3.30am on Bishopsgate, the victim was speaking to another driver as his partner waited in their car.
Whilst he was doing this, two men opened the passenger door and stole a handbag that belonged to his partner.
As the men made off, they were chased by the victim and his partner and were subsequently helped by three other men. Unfortunately, when they confronted the thieves, one of them was hit over the head with a bottle.
The assault caused a serious cut to his head which required hospital treatment.
The first man is white, medium build, clean shaven and wearing a black t-shirt with a large yellow or gold logo on the front, a black baseball cap with a white logo, a black waist-length hooded jacket, dark skinny jeans and white trainers. The second man is white, average built with short dark hair and wearing a dark coloured hooded jacket with white drawstrings, blue jeans, black trainers with white soles.
