The attack, in Kingston, south west London, in January, left the victim with a 9cm gash on her face and eye that was so deep it severed nerves.

She has been told the feeling in her face may never return.

After the attack, analysis of WhatsApp showed Morris had sent messages to her friends bragging - and even included an image of the suspect posing with her injured hand.

This was a horrendous assault. The victim has been left with lifelong visible injuries to her face for absolutely no reason while she was enjoying a night out with friends in Kingston.

I want to praise the work carried out by all of my colleagues in uniform who provided great evidence from the scene and the paramedics and staff at the hospital for helping the victim recover from these injuries.

I also wish to commend the bravery, determination and courage of the victim and her friends who helped with the investigation.

Let this sentence be a lesson to those considering assaulting others, we will not tolerate violence and we will investigate and bring those offenders to justice.

– DC Heidi Foley, Kingston Police
