Schoolteacher Couple Brutally Attacked In Pub While Watching Manchester Derby

A schoolteacher couple enjoying last season's Manchester derby in a pub were brutally attacked – leaving the male visually impaired with a titanium plate in his eye socket.
The 45 year-old man and his 46 year-old wife were watching Manchester United v Manchester City in The Millers Pub, Caledonian Road, Islington on September 10, last year.
Detectives have released this CCTV image of their suspect, who is believed to have inflicted eye injuries to both Sharon Wilson and his wife Deborah, from Peterborough.

They were only in the pub because their King's Cross train had been cancelled and there was a confrontation between the men at the door as the couple left.
As the couple exited at around 2.30pm the suspect made a comment to Deborah, which Mr. Wilson challenged.

The men nudged each other, and the suspect responded by punching them both in the face.
Detective Constable Adrian Safiani of Islington CID, said: "This was a horrible assault on what should have been a relaxing afternoon out.
The injured man now suffers from visual impairment after having a titanium plate fitted to his eye socket.
Deborah & Sharron Wilson
We are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the male on the image or anyone who witnessed the incident."
Anyone that can assist the investigation is asked to contact Islington CID via 101.
