Police are searching for a suspect after two people were attacked with a hammer at random at a London Tube station.
Just after 8pm on Thursday, the two victims were approached by an unknown man and struck on the head with a hammer in an unprovoked attack.
Both victims received medical attention and did not suffer life-changing or life-threatening injuries.
Police issued CCTV of a man they want to trace who they believe could have information which could assist their investigation.
