Two teachers in their 40s were savagely attacked without warning in a King’s Cross pub – leaving one with permanent eye damage.
Police this morning released CCTV of a man they say has information about the assault at Millers, which is at the bottom of Caledonian Road. No one has been arrested in the weeks since it happened.
It happened on September 10 as a Manchester United vs Manchester City match was being shown on TV.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “At this stage of the investigation it is understood the victims, a husband and wife, both of whom are teachers, were watching the Manchester United vs Manchester City football match.
“At about 2.30pm they decided to leave when a male became verbally abusive.

Islington’s Det Const Adrian Safiani said the husband had to have a titanium plate fitted to his eye socket and has suffered permanent visual impairment in his right eye.

“This was a horrible assault on what should have been a relaxing afternoon out,” Det Const Safiani added. “We are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the male on the image or anyone who witnessed the incident.”
