WITNESSES are being sought by police after a very serious assault took place at our pub on Friday night.
At around 10.30pm an altercation occurred between two men, leading to a violent brawl and the victim being hospitalized with life threatening injuries.
The suspect being sought for questioning by the police is a white male, shaved head, aged between 25 to 35 years old with a beard. He is about 6-feet tall with a muscular build and he was wearing blue jeans with a black Nike hoodie.
After leaving our pub he was seen getting into a black Ford Fiesta and driving towards central London.
Whilst we have not seen him at our pub before, we’re hoping someone may recognize him, and due to the serious nature of this incident we please urge you to share this on your social media and help to identify and bring the assailant to justice.
Investigators believe that the suspect and victim did not know each other.
Currently the victim is fighting for his life and is on a life support machine.
A police cordon was in place outside the pub most of the weekend, to help police carry out forensic work, but we have now reopened and resuming business as usual.
Should you have any information please contact Bermondsey police on 101 quoting incident number 46898
