Police have released images of a man wanted in connection with a brutal attack in a Highgate bar.

A man was hospitalised after being smashed over the head with a glass in Caipirinha jazz bar in Archway Road and left with a deep cut that required eight stitches.

He was attacked after asking the attacker to leave a group of his female friends alone to dance.

Det Con Juan Martín, from Haringey Police, said: “The suspect argued with the victim and then turned his back, appearing to walk off.

“Once the victim’s back was turned, the suspect smashed him over the head with a glass. This was a cowardly attack.”

Officers investigating the incident, on August 24 last year, issued two CCTV stills this week.

They are asking for help in identifying one of the men pictured.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
