A man had a pint glass smashed in his face for no reason while playing darts in a Hoxton pub.

The victim, 27, was with a friend when another customer picked up a glass from the bar and attacked him with it. He was left needing stitches to a gash on his face.

The attack took place at 7.45pm on April 13 in the Three Crowns, East Road.

Police say it was captured on CCTV but “extensive enquiries” mean the attacker has still not been identified almost six months on.

Scotland Yard has now decided to circulate an image of a man they want to speak to over the incident. He is white and in his late 30s.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information can call detectives at Hackney CID on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC.
