Met Police detectives have released shocking footage showing a man kung-fu kicking a couple outside a McDonald's in Barnet, north London. The attack happened in the early hours of 20 September after reports of a fight outside the restaurant in the High Road.

A man, believed to be aged in his 30s, shouted across the street to another man and a woman outside the restaurant. He then crossed the street and kicked them both, hitting them after they had fallen. The victims were both taken to a north London hospital. The woman required six stitches for a split lip and was bruised across her head and elbow following her fall to the ground. The man sustained cuts to his face. The suspect is described as 6ft tall, bald and wearing a grey top and shorts.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the man or who witnessed the assault. Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 170289 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
