How it Happened
The incident occurred at Garden’s Food and Wine in Manchester Road on the Isle of Dogs. The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
Police say they are treating the attack as racially motivated and, after launching an investigation, the Met recovered the CCTV from the shop with the aim of hopefully naming the thug who carried out the attack.

‘We will not tolerate this kind of behaviour and I’d ask anyone who recognises the man in the image to speak to us immediately.’
