The Metropolitan Police released the graphic video that showed the suspect rummage through the victim’s pockets while he was lying on the ground. The victim suffered a fractured skull and a bleed on the brain, The Sun reported.
The 23-year-old victim was in a coma for weeks, the report said. The incident occurred in August but the video was just released.
“This was a completely unprovoked assault on a young man walking home after a night out,” a detective told the paper. “The victim has only just managed to make a full recovery from his physical injuries, however this attack has had a large psychological impact on him.
