An Austrian tourist was left with horrific injuries after being attacked as she left a west London tube station.

The woman aged 60 was repeatedly punched in the face by a man as she came out at Warwick Avenue station.

She was taken to hospital following the incident and required eye surgery.

The incident happened at around 8pm on Friday 10 March.

The victim, who has agreed for her image to be used but does not want to be named, said she was attacked after the man tried to chat her up and she politely turned down his advances.

The suspect is described as:

White

Aged between 25 and 27

Around 5ft 8ins tall

Short brown hair

Brown eyes

Wearing light coloured trousers, brown jacket and black baseball cap

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the attack to come forward.

Detective Constable Mike Reilly said: “This was a vicious unprovoked attack that has left the victim very shaken. Her injuries are so severe that she requires surgery.

“Warwick Avenue is a busy area, especially at 8pm on a Friday evening.

“Someone must have seen something and I’d appeal for anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible so we can bring the perpetrator to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Westminster CID via 020 7321 8260 or @MetCC.

Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
