Motorist's Nose Smashed With Hammer: CCTV Released

Police are hunting two armed thugs, who broke one man's nose with a hammer and left a second nursing a knife wound.

Footage of the suspects taken on a mobile phone has been released.

On Monday May 16, police were called at around 8.55pm to a report of an assault near Spindrift Avenue close to Millwall Park, Docklands.

It is believed the hammer victim, 30, was the driver of a BMW car, who was attacked by two men after he arrived at the scene of an ongoing dispute.

A second man received a cut to his hand after he tried to defend himself from a man armed with a knife.

The suspect with the hammer then smashed the windows of his car.

The victim who was struck in the face with the hammer was taken to an east London hospital for treatment and later discharged.

Suspect 1 is described as a medium built man, aged in his twenties, and 5ft tall.

He was wearing a dark hooded top, dark trousers and spoke with an English accent.

Suspect 2 is described as a slim built Asian man, aged in his early twenties, and 5ft 4ins tall.

He was wearing a green khaki jacket and carrying a shoulder bag.

He also spoke with an English accent.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise either man or who witnessed the assault.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 020 7275 4550 or via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
