Police issue e-fit images following two homophobic attacks in Walthamstow.

The first incident happened on 8 October on the HIgh Street when a 47-year-old man and his husband were approached by a man who grabbed one of them. He is alleged to have said "you are not welcome here" after he was asked to take a photograph of the coupleo.

The victim was then pulled away by his husband before police were called.

In the second incident on 4 November, a 31 year old man was punched, threatened and attacked by three men on Hoe Street. The victim was left with a black eye, cuts and bruises.

Police have not ruled out the possibility that both attacks may have been carried out by the same man.
