Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak in connection with a vicious assault on two young brothers in Dagenham.
Jake, 16, and Jordan Lane, 17, were waiting for a 173 or 175 bus at the bus stop opposite Tesco Express in Dagenham Heathway, shortly before 5pm on September 26, when they noticed a man staring at them.
They ignored him - but as Jake went to board a bus, he was suddenly attacked.
His brother saw him punched repeatedly in the face before he fell to the floor.
Fearful for his safety, Jordan kicked the suspect, who continued to hurt Jake while he was on the floor, before punching the older brother in the face too.
