Police are again appealing for information after a man who stepped in to protect his female friends was assaulted in Camden and left with a broken nose.

The Met has released a new image of three men they want to speak to in connection with their investigation.

The assault occurred around 2am on January 5 at a bar in Chalk Farm Road when a group of men approached the 23-year-old victim and his friends.

They are then reported to have behaved inappropriately toward some of the victim’s female friends.

When the victim intervened and asked them to stop he was attacked and was left with facial injuries. The group of men then left the bar.

PC Martin Edwards said: “As a result of an earlier appeal, we have identified one of the men we needed to speak with.

“I am now urging people to take another look at this photograph, which now includes a further male we need to identify, and give us their names.”

On June 17 police arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm. He was later released under investigation.

If you recognise any of the men in the photograph call the police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 774/05Jan.
