A man was smashed over the head with a glass bottle after children were told off for splashing people with water in Catford, police say.

Officers were called at around 10.20pm on June 8 to Polecroft Lane in Catford where they found a man in his 20s suffering from serious head injuries.

Earlier that evening, at around 6pm, police believe a group of children were told off after they splashed people nearby during a water fight.

This led to a disagreement between two groups of men in Polecroft Lane later that day.

As a result, a man, 22, was hit over the head with a glass bottle and is now in hospital, in a stable condition.

Police want to trace three black men over the incident. The first is around 6ft tall, with a beard and short hair, wearing a black jacket with zip and collar.

Anyone with information should call Detective Sergeant Pete Campbell on 020 8284 8468 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Just figures doesn't it? People who cannot keep control of their brats that are unruly and out causing anti social behaviour around other people nearby in a public area, and then the 'grown ups' have to pile in and show the kids some really good examples of grown up combat style. Shameful. I bet those blokes felt really good didn't they? Cnuts as gypo joe would call em.

Exactly. You know full well that you're never going to get a decent response from parents of anti social children. If they were decent people they wouldn't let their children behave in that way in the first place. It's the same as some twot that plays music loudly on the train or tube. If they had any consideration for people then they wouldn't do it, so you know exactly what type of response you'll get when you challenge them.
