Cops hope Haringey residents can put name to thug who left Spurs fan with broken skull?

By Russ Lawrence in Local People

This the face of a violent soccer yob who left a Spurs fan with a broken skull and horrific facial injuries following an unprovoked attack.

Detectives have released a photo-fit of the thug in the hope someone might recognise him and provide them with his identity.

Michael Voller was brutally beaten not far from Wembley Stadium after Tottenham Hotspur’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea last month.

Police believe the suspect is a fellow Spurs fan who mistook the 23-year-old for a rival Chelsea supporter.

Michael, a former White Hart Lane groundsman, had been to the game with a group of friends .

As they walked past the Moore Spice Indian restaurant in Engineers Way he was targeted by another group of Tottenham fans and one of them punched him in the face with such force he needed surgery for a broken eye socket, cheek bone, jaw and fractured skull.

Police have been able to produce the e-fit with the assistance of a witness.

The suspect is decribed as a white man in his early 20s, approximately 5ft 10ins tall.

At the time of the attack he was wearing a black hooded top or jacket.

“This unprovoked and cowardly attack has resulted in injuries that could affect the rest of a young man’s life,” said investigating officer, Det Cons James Robb of Brent CID.

“There is no place for this kind of violence in football or anywhere else. Someone knows who committed this unprovoked attack and I sincerely hope they do the right thing and help us place this violent individual before the courts. “

“All information that we receive is treated in the strictest confidence, but you can also remain completely anonymous by calling Crimestoppers,” he added.

Anyone who has information that could assist police in identifying the suspect should call Brent CID on 0208 733 3737 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
