THE police have made a fresh appeal for information about a violent attack by a gang of racist thugs which severely traumatised two Arab men last month.

The gang screamed racist abuse at a 56-year-old Iraqi, from Bromley, and a 40-year-old Tunisian, from Catford, as they were leaving Scruffy Murphy's pub, in Widmore Road, Bromley, on February 19 at 11.15pm.

It is believed the two victims had been verbally abused in the pub by one of the gang members earlier that evening.

The gang of four or five white men assaulted the two victims, leaving the Iraqi with head injuries and the Tunisian with cuts and bruises.

When police officers found the two injured men, they called an ambulance which took them to Bromley Hospital where they were detained for a few hours and then released.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “This is an awful example of how a race attack can happen in Bromley.

“Our enquiries have not turned up any leads so far.

“We are still anxious to speak to anyone who saw this incident.”

Anybody who knows anything about the attack should call Bromley Community Safety Unit on 020 9284 8760.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
