Police have made an arrest in connection with a serious assault which left a man with severe facial injuries.

The 57-year-old man was arrested yesterday on suspicion of grievous bodily harm in connection with the attack at the Raja Salon in Village Way East, in Rayners Lane, on Monday.

The victim, a man aged 50, was found with serious facial injuries that police believe were inflicted with a knife.

He was taken to hospital where he remains in a non-life-threatening condition.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen an argument between the victim and another man before the attack happened.

Detective Sergeant James Griffin said: “This was a very serious attack that has left the victim with wounds that are likely to scar him for the rest of his life.

“I would encourage anyone who saw what happened or who has information about the incident to call officers as soon as possible.”
