Detectives hunting for a woman suspected of throwing a glass in a bouncer’s face during a night out have released CCTV footage of the moments leading up to the attack.

The Gabeto nightclub security guard went to break up a fight between two men at about 2.10am on October 14.

Police suspect the woman of throwing the empty wine glass at the guard who was rushed to hospital where staff removed shards from underneath his right eye.

In CCTV footage taken on the night the suspect – described as having long, dark hair, wearing a light-coloured T-shirt dress, in trainers with a dark rucksack – can be seen throwing a drink over another man moments before the attack on the security guard.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information about the assault at the Chalk Farm Road club to come forward.

DC Chris Shepherd said: “This was an unprovoked assault on a man who was only trying to do his job.

“We would like to hear from anyone who was in the club that night who may have seen something and has not previously contacted police, or anyone who may be able to identify this suspect.”

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
