Officers from the City of London Police are appealing for witnesses, after a man sustained life changing injuries when he was attacked on London Bridge earlier this month.

The man was walking alone across London Bridge, on the east pavement, on Wednesday 15 May at approximately 23.00 hours, when he was approached by two strangers and violently assaulted.

The strangers, both men, described as in their late 20s and of Middle Eastern or North African appearance, are believed to have crossed the road to the west pavement of London Bridge, towards the Barrow Boy & Banker pub and Borough Market, following the assault.

The suspects were well dressed and well groomed. They both had short hair and one man had short, trimmed facial hair.

Anyone with information about this attack, or anyone who may have witnessed it, is encouraged to contact police on 020 7601 2999 quoting the crime reference number 19000248622.
