Police in Waltham Forest have released a CCTV image of a man wanted in connection of a group attack outside a chicken shop.

The man (pictured) is accused of grevious bodily harm (GBH) and robbery following the assault on a young Asian man outside Dixy Chicken in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton, on July 5. 

In the early hours of Saturday at around 2:30am, the victim, said to be in his 20s, was punched and knocked down to the ground, suffering short-term memory loss, as he was robbed of his gold chain.

Police have described his injuries as "substantial" and he remains in hospital where he is being fed food through a tube. 

He suffered cuts and bruises and has had a metal plate inserted into his jaw after it was broken in two places. 

Three other suspects were being sought by police but have since been identified.

The CCTV image has been released to the Guardian as part of a joint venture with the Metropolitan Police to identify potential perpetrators of unsolved crimes in the borough.

Anyone with information should contact Waltham Forest police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 4913750/14.

These chicken shops are a scourge on society, unhealthy fried rubbish served up in premises that are a magnate for yobs and trouble.

I do not know what quality a meal for £1.99 can be but can guess it is second rate if that.

Yes and I agree with you also, you suggest bottom up and I suggest top down. Thing is, I feel the 'top down' control would be easier and more stringent regulation of these types of premises could be beneficial?

The 'review' is the fact that these establishments attract trouble.
