A man who accidentally spilt a drink in a pub was repeatedly punched in the head following the incident, Scotland Yard have said.

Police are appealing for help in identifying two men they believe could assist them in their investigation into the assault, which took place in The Ranelagh pub, Bounds Green Road, Haringey.

It is believed the 37-year-old victim accidentally spilt a drink before he was attacked and repeatedly punched about the head by a man described as white and aged about 25 to 35 years old, wearing a black coat.

Officers want to talk to the two men pictured in CCTV stills they have released, and also want to trace a woman that both men were understood to have been seen with.

She is described as having dark hair and wearing a pink top.

The victim sought treatment for injury to his eye.

DC Leon Ure of Haringey CID said: “This appears to be an entirely unprovoked assault on a man that accidentally spilt a drink and didn’t fight back when he was goaded and attacked.

“It was a busy pub on a Friday night, the incident can’t have gone unnoticed. I ask anyone that was in The Ranelagh on Friday, October 26 between about 8pm and 9pm that saw this incident to call us.

“If you have any information or recognise the men pictured please contact us.”

Anyone with information call DC Ure on 020 8345 0712 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
