Police hunt man and woman for unprovoked attack

WANTED: Police wish to speak to this man and woman in connection with the attack

POLICE OFFICERS have issued images of two people they wish to speak to after a man was attacked on Friday morning (July 22).

It is believed that the 43-year old victim was walking along Villiers Street, central London, and had turned into the Strand when he was attacked by two people.

The woman, believed to be aged 25 to 30 years, of slim build, with shoulder length hair, and the man, aged 25 to 30 years wearing a white short sleeved t-shirt, white trousers and black trainers, pushed him to the ground and kicked him several times in the head.

Police and the ambulance service attended and the victim was taken to a central London hospital with facial injuries, and was subsequently discharged.

The suspects are believed to have made off in the direction of Trafalgar Square.

The investigating officer, Detective Constable Steve Beech, said: "This was a completely unprovoked attack on the victim.

“I am confident that someone will recognise the two people in these pictures. There were a lot of people in the area at the time and I want to ask anyone who knows who these people are, or who has any information about the incident, to come forward. Any detail, however small, could help us to piece together what happened."

Anyone with information should call the Metropolitan Police Service non-emergency number 101. Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
