Police seek identity of men who bottled women in nightclub

The City of London Police is asking the public for their help in identifying two men believed to be involved in a violent fight which resulted in two women being scarred for life. 

On Sunday 2 September 2018 a group of three women were sat at a table in a nightclub on New London Street (EC3R). At approximately 03:20 the group at the table next to them became aggressive.

One of the women was initially pushed by a male suspect wearing a white shirt. Another man, wearing a black t-shirt with palm trees on it, then picked up a glass bottle and struck the second woman across the face.

Following suit, the man in the white shirt also picked up a glass from the table and struck the third woman with it.

The two women who were struck received deep cuts to their heads and required stitches.

Police have today (Thursday 28 March 2019) released images of the suspects and are appealing for anyone with information about the two men to contact them.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to three women who they believe arrived with the men at the premises that night and were at the table with them when the incident occurred. They are not suspects in the case but could have important information which might aid the investigation. Officers have also released images of these women.

Detective Constable Richard Yapp, from the City of London Police, said:

“This was a terribly violent attack that left two women scarred for life.

"The nightclub would have been very busy that night and we would encourage anyone that saw the incident to get in touch with us.

"We are especially appealing to the three women who we believe were at the table with the suspects that evening when the incident occurred. We know it must have been a very distressing event to witness but we are asking them to come forward and speak to us as it is likely they have vital information which will assist our enquiries.

“The City of London Police is committed to tackling violent crime and bringing perpetrators to justice so if anyone has any information about the identify of any of the individuals in the photos we have released today we would urge them to contact police.”

You can contact the City of London Police by calling 020 7601 2999. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
