Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault at a pub on New Year's Eve which left a man with serious facial injuries.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, spent New Year's Eve at The Salisbury Hotel and pub on Grand Parade in Green Lanes, N4.

At around 23:40hrs, he accidentally bumped into another man, knocking over a drink on a tray he was carrying.

The pair exchanged words, and the suspect then poured a drink over him before throwing the empty glass in the direction of the victim's head. It smashed on the right side of the victim's face.

The London Ambulance Service attended and took the victim to a central London hospital. He required surgery, and has lost the sight in one eye.

Detective Constable Adam Rose, of Haringey CID, said: "This was a nasty attack which has left the victim with permanent eye damage.

"If you witnessed this incident or you have any information that could assist the investigation, please call Wood Green police station on 020 3276 3079."

Alternatively, witnesses can call 101 or tweet @MetCC, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH). He was bailed until a date in late March pending further enquiries.
