POLICE are appealing for help to identify two men in connection with a violent unprovoked attack on two others at a petrol station in Greenford.

They were called in the early minutes of Saturday morning to find two men with facial injuries. Both were taken to hospital and one required facial reconstruction surgery.

The suspects had arrived at the petrol station at around 11.15pm on Friday in a light-coloured car and, from the outset, were verbally aggressive.

One approached the night pay point, where the victims were paying for some items.

He briefly spoke to the cashier and, as he walked away, was seen to reach into his pocket and take something out, believed to be a knuckleduster.

He struck the back of one victim’s head and was then joined by his companion in an attack on both victims. They then fled in the car.

The first suspect is described as a white man, in his mid-20s, slim, around 6ft tall with dark brown hair. He was wearing a dark green/grey top and blue jeans.

The other, also a white man in his mid-20s, was wearing a dark, short-sleeved top, with a black puffa jacket with skinny jeans and black trainers.

Det Con Eliza Nosarzewska said: “This was a brutal attack which inflicted serious injury on the victims.”

Anyone who can help police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC, quoting CAD 00073/21NOV20. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
