Richard Bowman, 28, punched his 21-year-old victim so hard he was knocked to the ground and he lost two teeth.

Southwark Crown Court heard the brutal attack took place inside the Salvador and Amanda club in the heart of the West End in October 2014.

He was caught after a CCTV image of him inside the venue was publicised on BBC Crimewatch Roadshow.

On Tuesday he was given a suspended jail sentence, banned from all pubs and clubs in the city for 18 months and ordered to pay the victim £3,500 compensation.

He must also attend a programme to get help for alcohol-related issues.

Detective Constable Stuart Green, from Westminster CID, said: “This was a cowardly unprovoked assault. The offender punched the victim to the ground with brutal force. I would like to commend the victim’s determination to seek justice, and to the BBC Crimewatch team for all their assistance.

“I would also like to thank the public for their assistance in identifying Bowman which has led to him being brought to justice.”
