Plaistow, East London – Police are looking for a man captured on security cameras quickly approaching a 16-year-old girl from behind, punching her in the back of the head, and leaving her unconscious in the street.
The 16-year-old victim’s name was not released, but London24 reports that she is a Plaistow student, who was left shocked by the sudden attack. Her attacker followed her as she left her home on Tuesday, November 13 walking along High Street.
The security camera footage shows him approaching the teenager quickly from behind, punching her in the back of the head outside of the Black Lion pub, and leaving her lying unconscious on the sidewalk.
The victim said that she doesn’t remember the attack, only waking up in pain in an ambulance.
“It was really bad. I had a migraine, my chin was grazed and sore, my teeth were hurting because they were chipped and I couldn’t talk. I hope he does get caught so he doesn’t do it again to another person. I hope I am his last victim.”
The suspect is described as a muscular black man with a shaven head. He is roughly six feet tall, 25 to 30-years-old, and was wearing a baseball jacket and jeans.
