A young male was apparently the victim of a violent incident on Goldhawk Road last night according to some of you. I have put in a call to the local police press officer and will report more when I have it but in the meantime, just like you did during this incident, please let your fellow Bushers know via the comments if you are aware of anything.
0945 UPDATE: The Police have just given me this statement - it was a glassing with a broken bottle.
Police were called at approx. 18:20hrs on Tuesday 8th March to reports of a serious assault outside an Off Licence along Goldhawk Road, W12.
Officers and LAS (London Ambulance Service)
A 38year old male was attacked with a broken glass bottle. The male was taken to a local West London hospital with several gashes to his head.
A 45yr old male was arrested on scene by police and taken to a separate hospital with injuries to his hand and remains in police custody.
Now then, I wonder if this is the same Off Licence with an outstanding application - Londis of 20 Goldhawk Road - to sell booze until 2am. Even if it's not I defy any Councillor in Hammersmith Town Hall to look favourably on any future applications of that sort in Shepherd's Bush.
