Police investigating a violent attack on a man after a World Darts Championship event at Alexandra Palace have released an image of men they want to track down.

The attack happened shortly after 11pm on December 19, 2021 as the victim left the darts event with his wife and friends.

As the group walked towards a taxi rank, two men attacked the victim from behind, punching him several times and knocking him to the ground.

The victim was rushed to hospital with head and facial injuries and also suffered a broken leg in the attack.

DC Jess Glavin of the North Area Command Unit said: “This was a violent attack that has left both the victim and those who were with him understandably shocked.

“We have tried several avenues to identify these two men including speaking to witnesses and analysing CCTV but are now asking the public to help.

“Do you recognise them or know where they are? If so, please get in contact with police so we can progress this investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD6650/19Dec2021. You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
