Police want to speak to this boy after a security guard at Morrisons in Stamford Hill had a bottle smashed over his head.

A group of boys went into the supermarket at 8pm on June 20 and the security guard saw one of them stealing a bottle of booze.

But as he apprehended him the boy cracked the bottle over his head. Despite receiving a cut, the guard held down the attacker until the rest of the group returned and threatened staff.

The guard freed the male and the group ran off. The 40-year-old was then taken to hospital for treatment to his cut before being discharged.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information can call Hackney CID on 020 7275 3632 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
