A MAN has been arrested in connection with an unprovoked assault on a 16-year-old girl in London.
CCTV footage of the incident showed the girl being knocked to the ground outside the Black Lion pub in Plaistow, east London, before her attacker casually jogs off.
An ambulance was called and the victim was taken to Newham General Hospital. She was treated and has since been released.
Last night a 34-year-old man was arrested in connection with the assault.
''A man, aged 34, was arrested yesterday evening in connection with the assault of a 16-year-old female in High Street, Plaistow," a Scotland Yard spokesman said.
''He remains in custody at an east London police station.''
