DETECTIVES have begun a murder hunt for three thugs who beat up a customer on the ground outside an East London takeaway who died on Tuesday from head injuries—two weeks after the attack.

Police believe 36-year-old Jonathan Brady (pictured) was set upon by the men following an argument in the all-night fast food takeaway in Chingford in August 16.

They were called at 2.35am by a passer-by who saw him unconscious on the pavement in Station-road.

Jonathan was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital, but later had to be transferred to Queen’s Square specialist neurology centre in central London with head injuries and bleeding to the brain, where he died this week.

The bachelor from Hemel Hempstead, Herts, was with a friend socialising in the Chingford area before going into the Chicken Shop takeaway in Station road where they became involved in the dispute with the men who left shortly afterwards.

The two left soon after, when they were attacked outside, both punched and kicked.

Jonathan fell to the ground—but the thugs continued beating him before running off towards Chingford Green and Kings Head Hill.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who was in Station road, Chingford, around 2.30am on August 16, or knows anything about it, to contact the Incident Room on 020-8358 0400, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.
