POLICE have released CCTV images of a man they want to interview in connection with an assault which left the victim unconscious with a broken jaw.

A 30-year-old man and his wife were on a train travelling from Victoria to Bromley South at about 11.20pm on Friday, April 25, when they struck up a conversation with two other passengers.

Detective Sergeant Danny Stockdale said: "The group were engaged in a normal conversation and there were no issues during the journey.

"The couple got up to leave the train at Bromley South station and one of the men got up and followed them off the train and then assaulted the victim."

The victim was knocked unconscious and suffered a broken jaw in three places.

DS Stockdale added: "This was a grievous assault on a man who was coming home with his wife and now has to spend the next few weeks unable to eat solid food."

The attacker was aged 30 to 35, about 5ft 9in tall with a stocky build and closely cropped hair. He was wearing a red top and dark trousers.

The men had said they were from the Swanley area.

Anyone with information should contact police on 0800 40 50 40 or the Witness Appeal Line on 0207 391 5275 quoting background reference B9 of 15/5/2008.
