Police are appealing for witnesses after a man received potentially life-changing injuries in a random attack inside a pub in Camden Town.

The 33-year-old Italian male was subject to a serious assault inside Quinn’s in Kentish Town Road on Sunday, January 11, between 2.30am and 3.30am.

He was said to be standing alone not too far from the bar when he suddenly felt an impact to the left side of his face.

It is believed a bottle or a glass was used which caused a large laceration and a possible life changing eye injury.

At this stage, police have no description of the suspect.

Detective Constable Tina Baguena, Camden Major Crime Unit, said: “This appears to be a random, motiveless attack on an innocent man having a quiet drink.

“The attack left him with terrible injuries which may affect him for the rest of his life. I urge anyone with information to contact me urgently.”
