Detectives investigating a violent assault on Hare Street in Woolwich have released CCTV images showing four youths punching, kicking and stabbing a man. At approximately 3pm on Wednesday, 28 October, officers were called to a fight on Mortgramit Square.

A 23-year-old man was found next to a garage forecourt with cuts to his head and legs. The London Ambulance Service attended and took the man to a south London hospital. He was later discharged after receiving nine stitches above his right eye and eight to two cuts on his left leg.

CCTV captured the victim walking in the street. A group of men ran out of a barber's shop, with their hoods up, and chased him down the street before punching and kicking him to the ground. The four men were later seen on CCTV getting into a communal lift and re-enacting the assault as they waited for the lift doors to open.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Greenwich CID via 101 quoting the reference numbers or anonymously on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
