Detectives are relaunching an appeal for public help to trace a man following a vicious robbery in a small Whitechapel convenience store.
The appeal follows the robbery at MS Express newsagents in Osborn Street, just off Whitechapel High Street, at 3am on November 16.
A man in his 30s was attacked by two men and beaten to the ground. His mobile phone and wallet were snatched before he was left bleeding as his attackers fled from the shop.
The man was later treated at the Royal London Hospital with serious injuries.
Detectives have since charged someone in connection with the attack, but continue the investigation to trace the man caught on CCTV.
