Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault in Leicester Square.
It happened last Tuesday, when officers were called to the Angus Steak House at around 11pm. A man was found outside the restaurant door, unconscious with a serious head injury.
Police believe there was a fight shortly before they were called, and are appealing for witnesses. Investigating officer, DC Sanda Nicol, said: "The attack took place in an incredibly busy area and I am sure there will have been people walking past who may have noticed something,
or seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area at that time. Although the victim is now recovering at home he was incredibly lucky, his injuries were extremely serious and the attack could have proved fatal."
