We have released CCTV images of three men we would like to speak to in connection with a serious assault near Horley train station earlier this month.
A 20-year-old man was left with a broken jaw and pelvis following the assault around 7.15pm on 9 February.
The victim, was travelling with three friends from East Croydon on their way back from Crystal Palace’s match with West Ham, when they became involved in a disagreement with a group of around 12 other men.
One of the suspects punched the victim’s friend outside Horley train station. The victim was also punched and kneed by two men.
A third suspect then punched the victim in the face, resulting in the broken jaw.
The suspects are described as follows:
Male, white, in his 20s, slim build, wearing a red t-shirt
Male, white, in his late 20s-early 30s, around 5ft 8, bald, wearing a grey Crystal Palace beanie
Male, white, early to mid 40s, bald.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Richard Stoneham said: “I’m hoping that someone recognises these three men as we would like to speak to them in relation to our ongoing investigation.
“The incident quickly escalated from a disagreement to the victim being punched in the face and left with serious injuries. We are appealing to anyone who has any information about it to come forward.”
