Police are still appealing for witnesses to a brutal attack on Tower Bridge in which a man was set upon without warning by a group of a dozen youths.

They released sickening CCTV footage showing the assault two weeks ago but currently no arrests have been made.

The 29-year-old victim, who was returning from a friend’s wedding, had been “minding his own business” on the Southwark side of the bridge when the mob attacked on May 31.

The group are described as being aged between their mid-teens and early-twenties, from an Asian background and with east London accents. Two of the youths were riding Boris bikes.

The attack began when one of the group punched the victim in the back of the head as he walked by, causing him to fall to the ground. The rest of the gang then viciously kicked and punched him while he lay defenceless on the pavement.

Luckily, the victim was left with just cuts and bruises after the brutal assault.

A City of London Police spokesperson said: “A group of young men carried out a vicious, cowardly and unprovoked attack on a lone male minding his own business.

“The victim suffered several blows to the head and body and was lucky to walk away with only cuts and bruises.

“It is paramount that we catch those responsible as the group’s next victim might end up with very serious injuries. If you were on Tower Bridge during the time of the attack or recognise any of these men from the CCTV footage, please contact us.”
