Tot falls to the floor as her mother is beaten with a stick while cradling her
Around 15 thugs attacked a mother as she cradled her baby causing the tot to fall to the floor on Saturday night.
The one-year-old escaped serious injury after the violent mob struck outside the victim’s home in Rainborough Close on the St Raphael’s Estate, Neasden, at around 11.20pm.
The woman suffered a fractured leg after she was beaten with a stick when she rushed to the aid of her husband who was attacked by the mob.
He had drink thrown on him and was punched and kicked when he went outside to confront the gang about noise levels.
The suspects, who are all black men aged between 20 - 30, fled on foot.
Detective Inspector Mike West said: “I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and help police arrest and deal with this group quickly and effectively, and together we can stop any other innocent members of the public being harmed by them.
“This is a completely cowardly assault, especially when adding the fact that a young baby has been put in danger during the incident.”
