Clapham stabbing: Met Police share new photos of man wanted in connection with Two Brewers attack

The Metropolitan Police have released new images of a man they want to identify following a homophobic attack outside a gay bar in Clapham, South London. 

The incident happened on Sunday (13 August) at 10.15pm outside the Two Brewers – a popular LGBTQ+ bar in Clapham – where two male victims, aged in their 20s and 30s, were attacked by a man with a knife. 

The newly released CCTV images show the man on the number 50 bus in Thornton Heath prior to the incident, at around 8.30pm. 

Detective chief inspector Jivan Saib, from the local policing team in Lambeth, said: “These images provide a clearer picture of the person we need to identify and locate following this shocking attack. 

“I would urge people to look at these images – do you know this man? Do you recognise the clothes he is wearing?

“If you can help identify him then please get in touch.”

The Met is treating the stabbing as homophobic in nature and no arrests have currently been made.
