We are appealing for information after a man was seriously assaulted at Liverpool Street station.

The incident happened between 1.15am and 1.45am on Saturday 26 August.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was outside Wasabi at the station when he was approached by a man who punched him in the head.

The victim fell to the floor and the offender walked off in the direction of Shoreditch.

The victim sustained a fractured skull and a small bleed to the brain. He required hospital treatment but has since been discharged.

The offender is a white man, aged in his late twenties to early thirties, average height, of medium build, with short brown hair and wearing dark clothes.

Investigating officer, Det Con Dionne Lyon, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who was at Liverpool Street station around the time of the offence who may have seen the incident take place. The victim was seriously injured and although he has been discharged from hospital he is still recovering.

“At this stage it appears this was an unprovoked attack and it is vital that we speak to anyone who can help us piece together what happened before the incident.

“If you have any information, please call me on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference number 54 26/8.”
