A delivery driver remains in a critical condition a week after being assaulted with a bat, police have revealed.
Officers released further information about the "violent and unprovoked" attack, which took place in Bethnal Green on Monday, May 27.
They were called to Globe Road at around 5.10pm where they found an injured 26-year-old man.
Police believe he was assaulted by a group of men armed with a bat and that they may have been involved in an incident in Roman Road a few minutes before.
The victim, who police said only arrived in the UK a few months ago, was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
