Detectives from Hammersmith & Fulham are appealing for information following an unprovoked assault in Shepherd's Bush which left the victim with critical injuries.

Police say last Friday, September 23, shortly before midnight, a 52-year-old man was assaulted in Shepherd's Bush Green, near Shepherd's Bush tube station.

An altercation occurred on the footpath outside the central line tube station on Uxbridge Road where the victim received head injuries which have left him in a critical condition at a West London Hospital.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the offence and would like to trace a black male wearing a distinctive yellow polo t-shirt with black hoops and baseball cap who was seen running from the scene.

There has been no arrest at present.

Detective Constable Mark Breeze from Hammersmith & Fulham's Violent Crime Unit said:" This is a very serious incident in a busy area and I would appeal for anyone who knows anything about the assault to come forward."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Violent Crime Unit on 0208 246 2432. Alternatively to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
