Police in England are searching for a man who was filmed knocking another man to the ground with just one punch.
CCTV footage of the assault, released by Scotland Yard, shows the moment the victim (37) was left unconscious and bleeding at the reception of a Custom House Hotel in London
The attack, which took place in the early hours of Saturday September 19, is now the subject of a police investigation.
The man, who is clearly visible in the CCTV footage, is described by detectives as white, wearing black shorts, black ankle books, white or grey trainers and a baseball cap at the time of the attack.
A Scotland Yard representative told London24 that the victim was left with a cut mouth and bruised eye after the early morning assault.
“CCTV shows the suspect arguing with the victim, taking his neck in his left arm and then hitting him in the face. He then let go of his neck, causing him to fall onto the hotel counter and then onto the floor.”
