A thug who beat someone up so badly they ended up in a coma is being hunted by police.
The vicious assault took place at about 11pm on December 27 in Caldy Walk, Islington.
The victim, a 49-year-old man, was left with a serious head injury and was put into an induced coma in hospital.
He is now in a stable condition.
After an initial appeal early this month, several witnesses came forward.
