COPS are still appealing for information three weeks after a serious assault in Poplar left the teenage victim with potentially life changing head injuries.
The 18-year-old boy, thought to be Abdul Mumin Khan from Shadwell, was found with severe head injuries after the attack at the junction of east India Dock Road and Jeremiah Street around 9.30pm on Thursday, April 1.
His injuries are believed to have been caused by a blunt instrument and, although he has now been discharged from hospital, he is still receiving treatment for his injuries, which at this stage are considered life changing.
Abdul is thought to have been attacked with sticks during a brawl between up to 20 people following a row at a party.
