An Arsenal fan was left with serious head injuries after a brutal attack at Potters Bar train station.

A British Transport Police spokesman said the 30-year-old victim and his friend were travelling back from an Arsenal match and had been talking to two other men.

“When the victim and his friend left the service there was some exchange of words,” he added. “One of the men punched the victim repeatedly.

“The victim sustained serious head injuries, swelling to right side of his face, a black eye and fractured cheek bone.”

Following the assault at 9.22pm on October 22 last year, British Transport Police today (Wednesday) released CCTV images.

The spokesman continued: “Officers would now like to speak to the two men in the CCTV image as they believe they may have valuable information that could help with the investigation.”

He urged anyone with information to contact officers via 0800 405040, or text 61016, citing reference 1700074848.
