POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a “callous and needless” assault on a group returning from a night out.

The three friends were walking down City Road at 3am on August 13 when a man riding his bike on the pavement collided with them and came off his bike.

He then confronted them and launched an unprovoked attack in which a 31-year-old woman was punched in the face. She suffered a broken nose. A 24-year-old man was punched to the ground and left unconscious.

PC Matt Jolley, of Hackney police, said: “This was a callous and needless assault.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hackney police via 101.
