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.”
